Honey Mustard Ritz Cracker Salmon

There are so many reasons to make this delicious  Honey Mustard Ritz Cracker Salmon!  It’s sweet. It only calls for a few ingredients.  It cooks up in less than 15 minutes, and it is absolutely mouthwatering!  Ritz Crackers make the perfect crispy crust for this salmon and is pares perfectly with a quick homemade honey mustard sauce! 

Over the past few years, I have seen delicious Ritz Cracker Chicken Recipes all over Pinterest, and I have always wanted to try them.   I LOVE Ritz crackers.  Is there no better snack than Ritz Crackers and cheese?   Since it is Lenton season for me, I decided to make a recipe using Ritz crackers.

This Honey Mustard Ritz Cracker Salmon is the best!

Cooking Tip- I highly recommend using Real Ritz Crackers in this recipe.   I buy generic much of the time, but I recommend using the Ritz brand for this recipe.

This recipe is:

Easy: Cooks up in 15 minutes from start to finish

Budget-Friendly: This $5.00 piece of fresh salmon fed three of us for lunch.

Has a short ingredient list: This recipe is salmon, honey mustard, and Ritz Crackers

It is kid-friendly- Honey mustard is sweet, and so are Ritz Crackers.  My four-year-old devoured this salmon!

This is SUPER easy.  All you need to do is:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
  2. Make a quick Dijon honey mustard sauce.
  3. Spread honey mustard over the salmon.
  4. Place crushed Ritz crackers over the salmon.
  5. Cook for 15 minutes.  Note:  If you use a larger salmon piece, you will want to cook it for additional time. 

My homemade honey mustard sauce is easy.  I mix 2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard with 2 tablespoons of honey and 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise and mix them.

Cooking Tip: If your family has a favorite honey mustard sauce, maple mustard sauce, or a sweet dressing.  USE IT and make this recipe your own!
