How to Make It

Step 1    

In a medium bowl, whisk the mustards with the honey, soy sauce, garlic and thyme.

Step 2    

Light a grill or preheat a grill pan and oil the grate or pan. Brush the salmon fillets with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the salmon fillets skinned side down over moderate heat for about 3 minutes. Turn and grill about 3 minutes longer, until the salmon is nearly cooked through. Generously brush both sides of the salmon with the honey mustard and grill, turning frequently, until richly glazed, about 1 minute. (For salmon steaks, grill over moderately high heat, turning once, for 4 to 5 minutes, then brush with the honey mustard, turning frequently, for 1 minute.) Transfer to a platter or plates and serve, passing the remaining honey mustard at the table.

Make Ahead

The honey mustard can be refrigerated overnight.

Serve With

Steamed or grilled bok choy.

Suggested Pairing

Floral, full-bodied Torrontés, a white wine from Argentina, is superb with rich, saucy seafood dishes like this salmon.

Review Body: I like all the ingredients, except for the unhealthy canola oil, which is not allowed in my kitchen.  I am planning on making this tonight, using grapeseed oil for brushing the salmon.  Thanks for the sauce recipe!

Review Body: I was cooking this yesterday but without soy sauce. Also seasoning the salmon with salt, pepper, paprika and a bit of cayenne pepper. It came out perfect and every family member loves it so much. Great recipe!

Review Body: I'm not a huge salmon lover, but I'm trying. I'll cook it, and make myself eat it, but I never really like it. That all changed when I had a terrific mustard glazed salmon at a restaurant recently. So good. Looking to duplicate it. This may be it! I didn't have any fresh thyme, so I used the dried stuff from the back of my pantry. It was fine. I'm also not a fan of skin - on anything, so I trimmed that off my filet. It was perfect!! Once you start doing the mustard glaze part - it makes a mess of your cooktop. Fair warning. (But didn't it need a good cleaning anyway?) I glazed and flipped it about 4 times. I served with some rice and mini grilled zucchini, that I grilled in the pan beforehand. Do hold some glaze aside for the table. My husband added it to his rice. My new favorite fish dish!
