These mustard glazed salmon fillets are amazing! With a hint of honey, dill, greek yogurt and a smokey dijon mustard, this glaze makes for one incredibly light and delicious fish dish. 

This dish is pretty simple to make. The smeared salmon fillets are baked open to create beautifully glazed fillets. And while the fish bakes an easy, tangy and creamy mustard sauce is made from a handful of ingredients. I really like how the plain greek yogurt mellows out the tanginess without detecting what was in the sauce. The results are very good. Not to mention how amazing the fish smelled while it baked away. Dijon mustard goes really well with fish, so do try tho nutritious, healthy and tasty fish dish.

This was heavenly! I didn’t have greek yogurt so I used soiur cream and it was perfect! Looks professional on the plate (I chose to plate it in the kitchen) and this is going into my main rotation!
