5 ingredients and 15 minutes is all you need for this fresh and healthy honey mustard roasted salmon.
We grew up eating seafood several nights a week and my mom’s honey mustard salmon was always one of my favorites. This simple 5-ingredient recipe is ideal for a busy weeknight dinner but fancy enough to serve company.
Many people love to order seafood in restaurants but are intimidated to cook it at home. The truth is, fish is practically fool-proof and so easy to prepare on your own. Quick cooking and extremely versatile, salmon and other seafood can be flavored with any spices or fresh herbs you have on hand.
Naturally protein-packed and full of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, salmon is one of our go-to week night dinners. We enjoy eating it grilled, pan-seared and of course roasted. Serve with rice pilaf and a quick green salad and dinner is done.
