"Salmon is delightful with Dijon mustard, garlic, onion, and a bit of tarragon. I created this dish for the low-carb diet I was on. Enjoy!!" — Oak Creek Cook

4 (6 ounce)
4 large cloves
garlic, thinly sliced
red onion, thinly sliced
salt and pepper to taste
this was a great recipie the only change i made was that instead of mincing all 4 cloves of garlic i minced 2 and sliced 2. i then cut slits in the salmon and put the garlic slices in the slits. to help flavor the intire salmon. then i used the minced cloves on top like the recipie says
This was ok. I didn't like the flavors of dijon mustard and salmon together. It wasn't terrible though. I sauteed the onions first, which added to the flavor, in a good way. Served with whole wheat couscous and steamed broccoli.
Great recipe if you are a garlic and onions lover-which I am. Consideration for the general public prevented me from rating this 5 star. Heart smart and definitely full of flavor. Next time I make it I will take it a step further and add crushed red pepper for a little zip. Thanks for sharing:)
Instead of tarragon, I used Herbes de Provence. I've never used that blend of herbs before and all I can say is WOW. It's a bit pricey, but the flavor these herbs bring to the dish is outstanding. My salmon turned out more like mustard-crusted, but it was delicious. Such an easy recipe with fabulous taste.
This recipe is easy and great. I use oregano instead of tarragon.
Another good option for cooking Salmon. I made a "Dijonaise" of light mayo and Dijon with a bunch of chopped garlic. Other than that...used the individual spices suggested by others rather than seasoning salt. A splash of white wine didn't hurt the moisture aspect any and adds to a mayo/dijon/garlic/wine sauce, albeit not of a large volume.
My husband loves salmon. He said this was better than any he has had in a restaurant. And it's really simple. I left out the onion but it was great.
Love this combination but then again we love garlic and onions. Would probably saute onions a little first tho - anyway, it is a great recipe and healthy too!!! Thanks for submitting
