Dijon mustard salmon

I’m proceeding on in the quest to eat more salmon.

Side note: I visited the Bonefish Grill recently for the first time, and it beyond exceeded expectations. I had the sea bass, and I also tried the fiance’s ahi tuna, and my friend’s tilapia.

This is a dish I got from AllRecipes.com a few years ago, and have made four or five times.


  • 2 salmon fillets
  • Dijon mustard
  • black pepper
  • Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • additional butter or cooking spray for greasing
