Honey Mustard Baked Salmon is an awesome and healthy dish that is really easy to make. They say you should eat fish at least twice a week. Salmon is certainly one of those nights in our house. I also love that it’s so quick and simple to make. Whatever flavor you wish, you’ll cook a salmon entree in twenty minutes, no problem. Yes, I’m in for it!
Here I’ve gone with an easy honey-mustard coating. I use a mixture of Dijon and coarse-grain mustard cause I like the taste and texture that it adds. If you don’t keep coarse-grain mustard in your kitchen, you’ll go with all Dijon mustard.
All you do is stir the honey and mustard, spread it over your salmon, top it with a touch of butter for additional flavor and richness, and toss it in the oven.
I additionally highly suggest shopping for wild-caught salmon. It’s got a lot of flavors and more nutrients; a win-win if you ask me!
