So growing up my family didn’t eat a lot of fish. If we had fish it came in stick form and was probably from Mr. Highliner’s lesser-known brother (deckhand Doug maybe?). Needless to say this didn’t leave me reaching for fish as an adult either. But over the last few years I’ve been trying different types of fish to see what kinds I like. I’m happy to say that salmon is now pretty much a staple in our house, so I started to play around with different ways to prepare it and this recipe is now one of my favourite methods of preparing salmon. Since I’m usually only cooking for my husband and I this recipe is enough for 2 people so feel free to double it if that suits your family. I like to serve this with a side of brown rice and a fresh salad.
Now without further a-do here is my Dijon glazed salmon recipe…
Sweet Dijon Salmon
2 salmon filets
1 Tbs mayonnaise
1 Tbs grainy mustard
1 Tbs Dijon mustard
1 tsp lemon
1 1/2 tsp sugar
– Preheat oven to 350F
– Line a baking sheet in parchment paper (or aluminum foil)
– Mix all ingredients except salmon together in a small bowl
– Place the salmon on the lined baking sheet and spoon and spread the Dijon mixture onto all sides of the salmon (a little less on the bottom and a little more on the top).
– Cook in oven for 20 mins or until salmon is done (firm to the touch).
Thanks and until next time, enjoy your adventures!
