recipe 23: Dijon herb-crusted salmon

I feel so behind with the recipe updates, but we’ve been eating a lot of salads lately (not very exciting).

Another great recipe from the “Nordstrom Flavors” cookbook. I actually made this last week, but my husband liked it so much, he requested it again this week.

Dijon herb-crusted salmon

4 green onions, white and light green parts only, minced
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
3 large cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup olive oil

6 skinless salmon fillets
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

Preheat the oven to 450F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a small bowl, mix together green onions, parsley, basil, oregano, thyme, and garlic. Drizzle in the olive oil, stir, set aside.

Season the salmon with salt and pepper, place the salmon on the baking sheet. Using the back of a spoon, spread 1 teaspoon of mustard over the back of the salmon. Use a rubber spatula to evenly spread 2 tablespoons of the herb crust over the mustard coating on each fillet.

Roast until the salmon is barely opaque, about 10 minutes. Serve immediately.
We enjoyed this dish with garlic mashed potatoes and Williams Sonoma stir- fried spinach.


  1. Thank you so much for posting this! I love Nordstrom's herb-crusted salmon. Now I can make it at home!

  2. Using fresh herbs makes this salmon taste absolutly delightful. Highly recommend!
