I love salmon, but my husband doesn't. So I combined flavors I knew he liked to create this recipe, and now it's the only salmon recipe he will eat. It’s so easy and only requires a handful of ingredients. —Nicole Clayton, Prescott, Arizona

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried minced garlic
  • 2 salmon fillets (5 ounces each)
  • Sliced green onions, optional


  1. In a small bowl, combine the oil, soy sauce, mustard and garlic. Pour half of marinade into a shallow dish. Add the salmon and turn to coat. Cover; refrigerate for 30 minutes. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
  2. Drain fish and discard marinade. On a greased grill rack, grill salmon, covered, over high heat until fish flakes easily with a fork, 5-10 minutes. Drizzle with reserved marinade. If desired, sprinkle with green onions.
