Mustard Dill Grilled Salmon

You guys, Kipling has been so sick!!! It is bad! He has had liquid poop for a couple of days and has to go every 10 minutes or so. He’s had some pretty bad accidents in his kennel the past few nights, and he usually never has accidents in there!! Now he doesn’t want to eat. I don’t blame him! If I knew I was just going to painfully pass my food in liquid form 10 minutes later, I wouldn’t eat either.

If you have any advice/tips/help, please share. I will take whatever I can get!! #newdogmom

Having a dog makes me realize how hard it will be to be a human mom one day! Ay yay yay. I’m realizing the challenges like- How am I supposed to know that it’s sick? It won’t tell me anything. Why is it upset? And I am really bad with poop accidents… I’ve been leaving those to Owen. I have so much to learn!

In other news, I’ve been watching some Extreme Weight Loss in my free time, and it’s AMAZING! I have realized more than ever that transformation has to start from the inside. So many of these people are just broken, with hurts in the past they’ve never dealt with and relationships that are struggling. It has made me realize (again and again and again) that health starts from the INSIDE! You will get nowhere in your health & fitness journey if you don’t first address your heart.

You know who is a great example of this? My friend, Chelsea. She just launched a health & fitness blog this week called Live Free Be Fit. She is amazing and has been through an inspiring transformation. Check out her blog at

I just love fresh salmon filet! Because it is so expensive, it is definitely a “treat” around our house. When we do get to buy it, I always want to prepare it the best way possible so that it’s as tasty as can be! This is a recent way I’ve been preparing it, and it is so flavorful!

So get this- yellow mustard is paleo. Yep, check out those ingredients. Gluten-free, dairy-free, most of them don’t have any additives or weird ingredients. Before you use a mustard for this, just make sure you check the ingredients to make sure. It should only include water, vinegar, mustard, and spices. Then you’re good to go!!


Mustard Dill Grilled Salmon
Serves 2

  • 1 lb salmon (2 filets)
  • 1 tbsp yellow mustard
  • 1/2 tbsp dill (mine is ground)
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt & pepper


  1. Heat up your grill. We use a George Foreman grill and I think that will work best, but you can use a gas grill (or even bake it at 375 degrees if you need).
  2. In a small bowl, mix together your mustard, dill, garlic, & olive oil until mixed well.
  3. Place salmon on the grill once it is heated up (skin side down).
  4. Using a spoon or a silicon brush, spread the mustard mixture evenly over the top and sides of the salmon. Use the entire bowl of mustard mixture so that there’s a nice coat on it. Sprinkle salt & pepper on top.
  5. Close the grill (again, we use the George Foreman grill, so we close the lid on top), and let it cook for about 7-9 minutes, or until fish is cooked all the way through. If you are baking, bake it for about 13-15 minutes.
  6. Remove from grill, let cool, and serve with some veggies. Enjoy!

Be inspired,

  1. Canned pumpkin! We have a great dane who gets the runs if he eats any type of grain (sucks when little kids want to give him a dog treat) it helps him “stiffen up” faster. Make sure it not the pumpkin used for pumpkin pie put actual pumpkin. And HI! I just clicked on you post because the salmon looked yummy!


  2. I’m so sorry! But I am kinda laughing that you posted about that with a food recipe, love the realness! When Boone had an upset stomach, I put Digestzen essential oil on his paw and he started eating again! So if you know anyone who has some oils you could ask to have some of whatever kind helps tummy aches. Cheaper than the vet!
