  • 1½ tablespoons herbes de Provence
  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard


  1. Preheat the oven to 375° F.
  2. Place salmon on parchment-lined baking sheet. Rub with the olive oil.
  3. Cover each filet with ¼ of the fennel tops and herbes de Provence.
  4. Combine the mustards and spread over the filets, using a rubber spatula or spoon to cover completely.
