My husband celebrated a birthday recently and I decided to make this delicious honey mustard roasted salmon. I have shared a similar recipe for nut crusted salmon recipe before, this recipe is similar but no nuts. Usually we cook salmon on the grill but in this recipe the salmon cooks in the oven. I adapted this recipe from a recipe I found on the Weight Watcher website. Honey Mustard Roasted Salmon can be prepared ahead which makes it a perfect dish to serve for company. You can prepare the salmon and then refrigerate until ready to put in the oven.
Honey Mustard Roasted Salmon
1-2 pounds of fresh salmon
⅛ tsp. salt
⅛ tsp. black pepper
¼ cup Dijon mustard
4 tsp. honey
1 Tbsp. water
1 Tbsp. White wine vinegar
1 small clove garlic, minced
¼ tsp. dry mustard
2 tsp. fresh dill, chopped
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Spray a shallow baking pan with nonstick spray or line the pan with parchment paper.
Sprinkle the salmon with salt and pepper and place on your baking pan.
In a small bowl whisk together the Dijon mustard, honey, water, vinegar, garlic and dry mustard. Use 2 Tbsp, of the mixture to brush over the salmon fillets. Stir the dill into the remaining mustard mixture and set aside.
Bake the salmon, uncovered, at 400 for 15-20 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
Drizzle with the reserved sauce. Serve with brown rice. Makes 4 servings.
Glad to be sharing this post to the Weekend Potluck.
