Among other reasons for eating healthy at this particular moment in time is that as I may have mentioned a couple thousand times or so, we have a wedding coming up. And our wedding duds are all lined up, and we need to fit into them by the time March rolls around. I’ve had my dress for a while now, but the Southern husband just got fitted for his tux this past weekend.
Is he a handsome devil or what?
Anyway, I am all about keeping us on the straight and narrow after this past season of chocolate and cheese, and this salmon recipe is part of my strategic plan. You want a nice boneless salmon filet, which you are going to slather with a mixture of sour cream and mustard. Roast it up for about 15 minutes, give it another slather of a mustard and lime juice mixture, and you are done!
I like to pull it apart into chunks and scatter some chives on top, and we have been known to eat it right off of the pan. Leaving us exactly zero dishes to wash at the end of the evening. I know, it just keeps getting better and better!

This easy recipe for mustard lime roasted salmon calls for only 6 ingredients and can be on your dinner table in less than 30 minutes!
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
- 1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
- 1 pound boneless salmon filet
- 3 tablespoons grainy mustard (see note)
- 1 lime
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
- Preheat oven to 450 and line a rimmed baking dish with parchment paper.
- Mix the sour cream and one tablespoon of spicy brown mustard together and spread it over the salmon. Place the salmon on the prepared baking dish and roast for 15 minutes.
- Cut the lime in half, and squeeze the juice from one half into a small bowl and mix with the grainy mustard. Cut the other half of the lime into wedges.
- When the salmon comes out the oven, spread the lime juice mixture over the top of it. Using 2 forks, pull it into chunks, sprinkle with chives and serve!
If you want a milder taste, use grainy mustard in place of the spicy brown mustard when you are making the sour cream mixture.
