Lemon and Honey Mustard Salmon

Feeds 4


Brain food coming at ya! I made 4 fillets of salmon and it has meant i've had a protein all prepped for the past two lunches and dinners. I've just been adding either a carb or salad or both to it to make it a complete meal. Honestly this marinade (which is 4 ingredients, most of which you might already have) doubles as a delicious salad dressing. Sometimes I just make more of it and add it onto a salad with the salmon.

If you, like me, struggle to eat healthy because it's boring as s*** then there's a chance you just don't have enough time to make healthy but TASTY things. As I am always on a mission to find stuff I love eating you can trust that I have your best interest at heart here, because i'm in the same boat. I have tons of salmon recipes you can make in mere minutes so stay tuned for more salmon and more deliciousness.


  • If the marinade is very watery then there's a chance you had a massive lemon. No worries, just add a little bit more honey and mustard to thicken it up so the marinade is more of a glaze.

  • You can't go wrong with salmon and potatoes. Serve this salmon alongside some potatoes and greens to make it a full meal.

  • Salad idea! - I roasted some pumpkin in the oven, chucked that into a bowl of spinach, tomatoes, feta, pine nuts, and fig balsamic. Made a bunch of salads from these ingredients, served me for half the week!

Price of Ingredients

Not Including: Olive Oil, Salt, Pepper

Sum of Ingredients: £9.35



  • Juice of 1 lemon

  • 1 tablespoon of grain mustard

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 4 salmon fillets

  • 1/3 cup of chopped parsley, for serving


  1. Mix together your lemon juice, mustard, honey, and half of your olive oil. You want the marinade to be a glaze consistency.

  2. Heat a pan or skillet on a medium-high heat. Add the remaining oil and wait until the oil is glistening.

  3. Place your salmon fillets skin side down in the pan. Season your salmon with a small pinch of salt and pepper. Cook for 3-4 minutes. Just before you flip your salmon, brush the tops of the fillets with your honey, lemon, and mustard mixture - making sure to use a generous amount.

  4. Flip your fillets and cook for a further 3 - 4 minutes.

  5. Take the fillets out of the pan and drizzle over the remaining marinade. Sprinkle the chopped parsley over the top.

  6. Serve with salad or a carb of your choice! (I like mashed potatoes). Enjoy!

Stay Salty,

Romy xx
