Worth experimenting with! Each time you make this recipe, change up the herb combination. Try it out with oregano, chives, savoury, or cilantro and use different amounts of each if there is one herb you prefer over the other. Don’t fret, your creativity will shine every time.

2 tbsp (25 mL) Queen Mary Classic Dijon Mustard
Zest of ½ lemon
1 ½ tbsp (20 mL) finely chopped dill
1 ½ tbsp (20 mL) finely chopped parsley

In a bowl, blend together herbs, lemon zest and seasonings.
Preheat your oven* to 400 degrees. Place the salmon skin down on a piece of tin foil (on top of a cookie sheet or shallow baking dish). Give the top layer a thin coating of dijon mustard evenly all over. Sprinkle the herbs over top. Bake for 10-12 minutes depending on the thickness of each piece of salmon.
