Baked Salmon with Sweet Mustard Sauce

This is the best salmon ever. I know I've stated this before about a similar salmon recipe, but from now on, THIS is the way to cook salmon, no more adding any wine to the dish while baking!!

Normally I would serve a hollandaise, avocado hollandaise or a cold creme fraiche dressing with fresh dill with baked salmon. But this sweet mustard sauce was really good and paired really well with the salmon and spinach.

Serves 2-4



  • 2-3 portion-sized salmon, bones and skin removed
  • ½ lemon, the juice from
  • 1 teaspoon lemon pepper 
  • ½ teaspoon olive oil, for greasing the baking dish


  • 120 ml (½ cup) heavy whipping cream
  • 120 ml (½ cup) Ravigotte sauce, or a sweet mustard sauce
  • 40 g soft cream cheese, as a thickener 
  • salt & pepper to taste



Pre-heat the oven to 400℉ (200℃).

Place the salmon in the greased baking dish, drizzle with lemon juice, and sprinkle with lemon pepper. 

Bake the salmon for 12-18 minutes, until the salmon flakes easy with a fork. 


Mix cream cheese with cream and ravigotte sauce in a sauce pan, while heating. Season with salt and pepper.

Serve the salmon with boiled potatoes and a sautéed spinach and the mustard sauce.
