Honey Mustard Salmon

I love, love, love salmon!  It tends to be really easy and perfect for a weeknight meal.  This salmon definitely falls into both of those categories.  I got this recipe from cooking light and I'm so glad that we gave it a try!  It doesn't require to many ingredients and they tend to be common items you already have.

What you need:

  • 4 6oz salmon fillets 
  • 1 tbs of whole-grain mustard
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • salt and pepper

In a bowl, combine mustard, honey, garlic powder, turmeric and crushed red pepper.

Place the salmon fillets on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray and spread the mustard mixture evenly over each fillet.

Smooth over the entire top and the sides so, there is a thin coating on each fillet.

Place salmon in the oven and broil for about 10 minutes.  To check to see if your salmon is done, use a fork and pull at the salmon, if it flakes easily then it is done.  Check at the thickest part of the fillet.

Serve with your favorite sides.  We went with broccoli because that is what Mike thought looked best at ACME (they don't have a great produce section).

I hope you enjoy this!  Mike and I really like it.  It is packed with flavor and the ease of it cannot be beat.
*note:  If you have sensitive smoke detectors, like ours, they will go off non-stop while the salmon is in the oven!  It is incredibly annoying!!!!  Thankfully, I have a professional towel swatter that I position under the smoke detector for when it starts going off.
