Fabulous seasoning. Elegant plating. Totally Yom Tov worthy. This keeps well in the fridge, so you can make it a few days in advance. Thanks to my sister, RL, for the idea.


Honey-Mustard Salmon

  • 2 pounds (1 kilogram) salmon, or 10 salmon fillets

  • 1 full teaspoon dehydrated onions

  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, or to taste

  • 1 teaspoon paprika, preferably in oil

  • 2 large cubes Gefen Frozen Garlic, or 4–5 medium cloves garlic, crushed

Spinach-Onion Bed

  • Gefen Olive Oil, for sautéing

  • 2 large onions, quartered and then sliced

  • 2 handfuls fresh spinach leaves, chopped

Wine Pairing

Matar Chardonnay 2020


Prepare the Spectacular Honey-Mustard Salmon Over Spinach and Onions


Lay salmon slices in a large pan lined with Gefen Parchment Paper. Combine dehydrated onions, Dijon mustard, black pepper, paprika, garlic, cayenne, salt, honey, and olive oil in a small bowl. Microwave for 20 seconds. It should form a paste. Spread over the salmon slices and let marinate in the fridge for an hour or so.


Meanwhile, heat a little olive oil in a large frying pan. Add onions and sauté over low heat for 30–45 minutes or until caramelized. Right before serving, add the spinach leaves, maple syrup, and salt and mix together gently.


Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius). Bake salmon for 15–20 minutes.


To serve: Place a spoonful or two of the fried-onion mixture on a plate and arrange a slice of salmon on top.


If serving this on Yom Tov, warm the sautéed onions separately. Add the spinach, maple, and salt right before serving, so the spinach stays bright green.
