Honey-Mustard Salmon


Vegas in May = diet needs to start now. We generally cook and eat healthy, but this week we are really making it a point not go out to eat for dinner, so I stocked up at the store on Sunday!

I was able to find fresh salmon which looked really good, so I gave this recipe a try. I love salmon with mustard and lemon -- so this caught my eye quickly! If you've ever had Trader Joe's marinated salmon, this actually tastes really similar. I definitely recommend!!!

The only note I have is that the salmon steaks we bought were very thick, so broiling them did not cook them enough. I ended up having to bake them off for about 15 minutes as well -- and that was just to get them medium, so the cooking time may vary. If you do bake it, I put them in at 375 so they wouldn't cook too fast. Ingredients: 2 tb dijon mustard 1 tb honey 1 tsp white wine vinegar 1/4 tsp salt 1/4 tsp pepper 1/2 lemon, thinly sliced and seeded 4 (6-ounce) skinless salmon fillets (mine were a bit larger) Directions: Preheat broiler with oven rack 6 inches away from heat. Stir together first 5 ingredients in a small bowl. Arrange salmon fillets on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet. Brush salmon with honey-mustard sauce. Broil for approximately 8 minutes, rotating halfway in the middle of cooking. NOTE: I topped the salmon with thin lemon slices for the last few minutes of cooking. Personally, I needed to bake these at 375 for an additional 10-15 minutes to get them to medium.
