SO – this weekend we had a great first camping trip! Other than a few unexpected setbacks. If you had watched my Instagram stories over the weekend you would have seen a tow truck as part of the weekend festivities. Just as we rolled into the campground our truck started SPEWING horrid black smoke, and once we turned it off to check out what was going on, it wouldn’t turn on again. So…..that was fun.

We won’t have any news on the truck until later this week but at least we still got out camping! Wally turned 4 on Saturday and we had so much fun celebrating him. We went for a hike, smacked a piñata, turned on the bubble machine and CAKE! It was a good day. We hitched a ride back with some friends and I have to say, as much as I love camping, there is nothing like sleeping in your own bed!!!

And you know what I’m going to say next. The other thing I love. 3 ingredient recipes!!

This maple Dijon salmon is my newest!

How do you make maple Dijon salmon?

I’m a bit of a one-trick pony when it comes to salmon. We probably have it once a week, but I don’t switch up my game all that much. Usually we just do a bit of spice, butter, lemon or dill on it. It’s delicious! But sometimes you want something a little different, right?

This maple Dijon salmon is super easy to make! Just lay a fresh hunk of salmon on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and whip up the maple Dijon sauce. Whisk together 2 tablespoons each of maple syrup and Dijon mustard, then spread it over the salmon.

Pop it in the oven and bake for 10-11 minutes or until the salmon flakes easily with a fork! I also love turning the broiler on high at the very end of the cooking time to crisp up the top of the fish for about 1 minute. It’s so good!

So this dinner can be yours in under 20 minutes! How great is that!? Maybe I need to start a 20-minute dinner series!

What do you serve maple Dijon salmon with?

So many options! I went with roasted baby potatoes this time but you could do rice, veggies or salad with it too. Here’s some of our favorites sides:

We love fresh, buttery salmon. If you love it too then you have to try it cooked this way! Not only is it easy, it’s delicious!

Leftover salmon can be kept in the fridge, and it’s terrific chopped up in a salad or in a sandwich for an easy next-day lunch! 

Now here’s to hoping camping trip #2 goes a little more smoothly 😉

Switch up your salmon game with this maple Dijon salmon! Spread a delicious maple Dijon glaze over your salmon before baking it to perfection in the oven! 


  • 1 1/2 lb – 2 lb salmon fillet, skin removed*
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. In a small bowl, whisk together the mustard and maple syrup. Using a spoon, slather the sauce all over the salmon. Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes, then check the thickest part of the fish with a fork to see if it flakes easily. If it is still very pink and not flaking, bake the fish for another 2 minutes and check again. Place under the broiler on high for 1 minute until the top looks crispy. Serve immediately.

Leftovers can be kept in an airtight container for 3-4 days.


*If your salmon comes with skin on, place the fish skin side down on the baking sheet.

  1. So glad you guys enjoyed your trip despite the setback! As for this salmon, it sound delicious. Salmon is my favorite fish and I love it with some kind of a mustard glaze. This sounds perfect!

    1. Thank you Kelsie!! We definitely still had a good time, so I’m glad we enjoyed the camping trip regardless of the craziness! I love salmon too 🙂

  2. I saw your stories and was wondering what happened that a tow truck had to be called!! What a bummer. But it still looked like y’all had a great time! Such a beautiful family!! And this salmon sounds delicious!! I love salmon and this is such an easy recipe!

    1. It was such a bummer, but I’m so glad we still had fun. The kids had an amazing time! Thank you so much Kelly, you’re always just the sweetest! XO

  3. I’m so glad you had fun camping despite the mishap with your truck, Katherine! You had to have been thinking, “You’ve got to be kidding me…”

    This salmon is just gorgeous! Love the combo of maple dijon and how simple this recipe is!

    1. Haha we were thinking that, but it’s also kind of “what are you going to do”!? Thank you my friend!!

  4. I won’t be shy smothering my salmon with maple dijon, not at all! Looks absolutely delicious, one may even completely forget about all the other things that add spice to life like that truck situation. Glad to hear that you still enjoyed your trip – things can be fixed, previous moments must be experienced. Sounds like you were on top of things!

    1. You definitely shouldn’t be shy about it, Milena! I completely agree. The memories were totally worth all of the hassle!

  5. Adding maple syrup and dijon mustard to your salmon is such a yummy idea. I love how you made this with just 3 ingredients, talk about the perfect easy summer dinner recipe!!

    1. Thanks Heidi, we’ve got to have easy dishes right!? I hope you had a great weekend!

        I’m always looking for easy ways to do my fish. My girls love salmon fish and usually i rub some salt, pepper, turmeric and some lemon juice before it goes in oven. But your glaze looks goldeny vibrant. My girls will love the mustard on it. Glad despite the truck bummer wally had a great birthday.

        1. Thank you so much, we are pretty basic with our fish too, but it’s nice to switch it up sometimes, right!? I hope you enjoy!

  6. My hubby is a bit picky and doesn’t eat much seafood, but he likes salmon so I cook it often. Love how quickly this one comes together, and saving some leftovers to top a salad sounds like a delicious idea. Hope your truck gets fixed soon!

    1. Salmon is basically the only seafood we really eat too, since the whole family enjoys it! Thanks Leanne!! It’s fixed and now we’re eager to pick it up (less eager to pay the bill)

  7. This salmon looks perfect for throwing on the grill this summer! Salmon is a staple in our PNW kitchen and I am looking forward to trying this maple dijon version!

    1. Salmon is a staple here too, we love it! I always love in August when there’s a ton of wild salmon available! Thank you Tasia!
