Easy Salmon Seasoning


This salmon seasoning uses common herbs and spices you may already have hanging around in your pantry. The flavors of dried mustard and dill complement fatty fish like salmon, but would also work well with cod or trout.

Active Time:
15 mins
Total Time:
15 mins


  • 1 tablespoon dry mustard

  • 1 teaspoon dried dill

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon celery seed

  • 4 (5 ounce) skin-on salmon fillets

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil

  • Fresh dill fronds for garnish (optional)


  1. Combine dry mustard, dill, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and celery seed in a small bowl.

  2. Pat salmon dry with paper towels; rub all over with the spice mixture (about 1 teaspoon per fillet). Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering, about 1 minute. Add the salmon, skin-sides down; cook until the skin is crispy, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until golden brown and cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a serving plate; garnish with dill fronds, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
