Gluten-Free Pretzel Crusted Salmon

Gluten-Free Pretzel Crusted Salmon

Salmon is a big item in my house.  While I don’t dislike salmon, it’s not my favorite, so I’m always looking for ways to jazz it up a bit.  A few weeks ago, I experimented with a pretzel crusted salmon.  The results were okay, but it wasn’t as good as it could be.  After some minor adjustments, and a few taste tests, my recipe has been fine-tuned and is ready to share.  Give this gluten-free pretzel crusted salmon a try, and let me know what you think.  

-The Gluten-Free Gal’s Guide


  • ½ lb. Salmon Filet
  • 2 tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 1 tbsp. Dijon Mustard
  • 1 tsp. Honey
  • ½ c. Gluten Free Pretzels- crushed (I used Snyders gluten-free pretzel sticks)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Combine the Olive Oil, Dijon Mustard, and Honey in a bowl.  Mix together so that is fully combined.  
  3. Pat your salmon filet dry with paper towel. 
  4. Coat the top of your salmon filet with your oil/mustard/honey mixture.  
  5. Sprinkle the crushed pretzels on top of your salmon filet so that the wet mixture is fully covered. 
  6. Cover a baking sheet with either aluminum foil or parchment paper, place your salmon on the center of the baking sheet, and place in the oven.  
  7. Bake your salmon at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 minutes.  
  8. Remove from the oven and let cool. 
  9. Serve and enjoy!
