Salmon with mustard butter and dill sauce

Print this entry

This is a great and simple recipe for salmon. It is very simple and makes a very juicy and tasty bit of fish.

All you need to serve 6 (or 4 hungry people):

1.1kg of Salmon steaks, or a single piece of boned middle cut salmon
175g butter
45ml whole grain mustard
20ml (4 tsp) dried dill
salt and pepper
300g fresh spinach, rocket or mixed salad leaves (I prefer to use rocket, and watercress works well too).

Gently melt the butter in a pan with the mustard and dill. Place the salmon on a big glass dish, try to cover as much of a dish as possible. If you have steaks they should all fit together nicely. If you have whole salmon, plan with skin up. Once melted, pour over the mustard butter sauce. Spinkle of salt and pepper and cover with tin foil. Cook for about 20-25 minutes at 230 degrees C. Place the rocket/ spinach on a plate and place the salmon on top, straight from the oven. Obviously if whole salmon, slice first. When you place the hot salmon and sauce on the leaves is slightly cooks them which makes it all taste a bit better I think.

Another easy meal.

  • Thank you, very useful. I wasnt actually a big fan of Spinach for many years (ok, that’s a total understatement, I hated the stuff), but after marrying a vegan I kind of had to get used to it, and have gradually come to love the stuff. Spinach curry is now my absolute favourite! I even found adedicated spinach recipes website which is my new favourite site now, you should take a look!
