Super-quick grilled salmon

This is great “fast’ food – it makes a super tasty quick lunch or dinner. It uses simple ingredients and contains those Omega 3 fatty acids that are so good for your heart! I served it with green beans which were steamed, then tossed in a little butter and some toasted flaked almonds. It is so tasty and looks a picture plus it gives the impression that a lot more work and effort has gone into making it.

Grilled Salmon final wtrmk


  • 1 – 2 darnes of salmon ( You can use up to 4 darnes without adjusting the recipe)
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 cloves of garlic, peeled & crushed
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 50ml olive oil
  • Salt & pepper


  • Put the salmon in an ovenproof gratin dish.
  • Mix the mustard, soy sauce, garlic and honey together
  • Slowly whisk in the olive oil.

Pour the mixture over the salmon and if you have time allow it to marinade for a few hours in the fridge. (Don’t worry if you don’t have time to do this, it will still be delicious)

Turn on the grill to a medium setting and put the salmon under it for 10 to 15 mins until the salmon is cooked through, keeping an eye on it so it doesn’t burn. If you are unsure you can check it is cooked by pulling it apart in the middle and having a peek.


Note: if the darnes are particularly large you could put them in the oven ( 170º / Gas Mark 3) for 10 mins. I have always cooked these successfully in the grill using darnes that I have bought in my local supermarket.

Serve with any green vegetable and a squeeze of lemon juice.  This is also delicious cold with a salad.
