  • 6 pieces (6 oz each) salmon fillets
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter, cold & divided
  • 1 medium shallot, finely diced
  • 3/4 cup white wine
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 3 Tbsp dill, chopped & divided
  • 6 medium zucchini; spirilized into noodles
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • pinch pepper

Set broiler on high.  Place salmon on aluminum lined baking sheet and sprinkle with salt & pepper.  Broil 7-10 minutes or until cooked to desired doneness.

Bring a small pan to medium high heat and add the olive oil and 1 1/2 Tbsp of the butter.  Add shallots when butter is melted and cook ~ 3 minutes or until soft.  Add wine, bring to a boil and simmer uncovered until reduced by half (~ 4-5 minutes).  Reduce heat to low and whisk in mustard, 2 Tbsp dill, salt, and pepper.  Remove pan from heat.  Cut the remaining 2 1/2 Tbsp butter into chunks and whisk into sauce.  Add salt to sauce to taste.

Plate raw zucchini noodles and top with salmon.  Garnish with remaining dill.  Happy eating!  Beckie —


  • Don’t burn the shallots. They should be soft and translucent, not crispy.  Reduce the heat if they are starting to crisp up.
  • Some broilers run extra hot and others are not hot enough.  If you don’t know your broiler, please watch your salmon to make sure it doesn’t burn.  Don’t want to broil?  Bake uncovered 375F ~ 15 minutes or until desired doneness.
