Baked Honey Dijon and Garlic Salmon is a great mid-week meal, requiring very few ingredients and little meal prep. This is a family-friendly recipe that will turn fish haters into converts!
This is one of those meals that we make on a whim in the middle of the week when we know we are both going to be working late. When we don't have time to put our energy into a complicated dish, we opt for something simple… like this recipe.
Prep time is no more than 10 minutes, making it super easy and quick to put together.
There are so many ways to make this type of fish bake, but this time we experimented by making it a bit sweeter than normal. The mustard's sharp and pungent flavor combined with the sweetness from the honey and sugar makes for a quite tolerable salmon. Salmon is not always my first choice of fish, but this make-up is something else.
It tastes like a treat, to be honest.
One of my favorite things about this type of dish is that it doesn't sit heavy in the stomach, and you can indulge knowing that you are eating healthily.
This dish was served with sweet and spicy Brussels sprouts and garden primavera risotto. It would also be excellent with coconut rice and asparagus or broccoli.
