Easy Honey Mustard Salmon Recipe
2 lb salmon fillet
½ teaspoon Extra virgin olive oil
Lime wedges to serve
For Honey Mustard Sauce
4 tablespoons whole grain mustard
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
4 garlic cloves minced
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
½ teaspoon cayenne optional
½ teaspoon black pepper
To cook in the oven, heat the oven to 375 degrees F and position a rack in the middle. To grill, heat a gas grill to medium high (about 400 degrees F).
Pat the salmon fillet dry. Season with salt on both sides.
Prepare the honey mustard sauce. In a small bowl, whisk together the honey mustard sauce ingredients (whole grain mustard, honey, extra virgin olive oil, minced garlic, smoked paprika, cayenne and black pepper).
To Bake. Place the salmon on a lightly oiled sheet pan or baking dish (if using salmon with skin on, place the salmon skin side down in the dish). Spread the honey mustard sauce evenly over the surface of the salmon. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Uncover and place under the broiler for 2 to 3 minutes.
To grill. Place the salmon (already seasoned with salt) on a large, lightly oiled piece of aluminum foil. Spread the honey mustard sauce on top of the salmon. Fold both sides of the foil over the salmon and tightly close it at the top. Place on a medium-high gas grill. Cover and let cook for about 10 to 12 minutes (grill time will vary depending on the thickness of your salmon, begin to check earlier in the process). Open the top of the foil up so the fish is exposed (lots of hot steam with be released, so be careful). Continue cooking about 3 minutes or so on the grill.
To serve. Remove from the heat. Squeeze a bit of fresh lime juice and garnish with parsley. Enjoy!
