Salmon with Healthy Creamy Garlic Dijon Sauce


Pan seared salmon is perfectly delicious on it’s own but when you add a healthy dijon sauce then it takes on a whole new delish-is-ness! This recipe is for a serving size of 5 folks.

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Servings: 5


  • 5 (8 oz) skinless salmon fillets
  • 4 tsp olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced (1 Tbsp)
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • cup Almond Milk
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp dijon mustard (or a little more to taste)
  • 3/4 tsp local honey
  • 3/4  cup low-sodium organic chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp minced fresh dill


  1. Heat a large non-stick (preferably an iron) skillets over low -medium heat.

  2. Place the olive oil into the skillet. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the salmon as you place it onto the olive oil, top of the salmon should be turned down.

  3. It needs to sear about 5 minutes then flip – I will place a piece of aluminum foil on top to help hold in the moisture. But after you flip it, let it cook about 3 minutes longer.

  4. While the salmon is cooking, in a mixing bowl, whisk together cornstarch with cream and then whisk in dijon mustard and honey.

  5. After the salmon is fully cooked, (but be sure not to over cook should still be flaky and moist), place it on a plate. Leave some of the oil in the skillet and tent salmon with foil. *PHOTO PROVIDED BY JOE’S HEALTHY MEALS

  6. Add your garlic to the skillet with the oil set on medium heat.  Saute until golden brown, and then pour in the chicken broth.

  7. Let simmer for about 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  8. Whisk cream mixture again then pour into skillet and let it simmer a little bit more.

  9. Remove from heat – stir in dill – place the salmon back in the skillet – slowly pour the sauce over salmon. *PHOTO PROVIDED BY INSTAPOT RECIPES

    A delicious side dish with this is baked sweet potatoes, sprinkled with cinnamon with a dash of clove. In place of butter, you can add 1 tsp of Coconut oil to the potato – stir it all up while in the skin – and serve them up tucked inside of small custard cups.
