Honey Mustard Salmon

Tuesday, 10 March 2020

No surprise here, we are huge fans in this house of fish. Not only is it good for you, but we think it is delicious. Salmon is a favorite choice when it comes to choosing to eat healthy,  because it contains significant amounts of essential omega-3 fatty acids , which support heart and eye health . This heart-healthy fish boasts a boatload of other nutrients, as well.  

When I saw the contents of the February Degustabox I knew the product I wanted to highlight with a special recipe and that it would work perfectly in this delicious Honey Mustard Salmon bake that we love.  

Being an oily fish with a stronger flavour, I knew the salmon would hold up well with the strongish flavour of Dijon Mustard, especially Grey Poupon, which is a favourite of ours. 

But before I give you the recipe, here is some more about the box.

As those of you who have been reading me for a while know, I am the lucky recipient of the gift of a Degustabox each month. Once a month, around the middle of the month, I am gifted with one of these lovely boxes which contain a delicious assortment of all things foodie.  I just love these boxes.  Each one is always a lovely surprise.  

Opening each one is tiny a bit like opening a Christmas gift to me. Always a surprise, and always filled with things that pique my interest and desire to try. Degustabox is a monthly foodie subscription service that sends out a range of 10 to 15 specially selected foodie products. I even have a code that  can give you which will  give you a £5 discount off of your first box. I will tell you about that at the end. I have been getting these boxes for a couple of years now and I have to say I have never been disappointed.

No surprise this is the product I chose to highlight with a recipe this month.  We always have a jar of it in the house. It is a store cupboard ingredient I would not be without!

We enjoy it with cold meats and cheeses and in recipes such as this delicious one I am sharing today.  You are going to love this.

Salmon is just about the oiliest I will go with fish.  I am not fond of mackerel or sardines I have to say.  I do like tuna as well, but that's about it when it comes to oily fish.  Todd is fond of the stronger flavoured ones.  I am a bit of a wuss.

This recipe involves brushing fillets of salmon with a lush Honey & Dijon mustard sauce,  and then pressing on a buttered crumb topping prior to baking.

I love fish as a supper option as it is quick and easy to cook.  The rich flavour of salmon lends itself perfectly to join in a perfect marriage of stronger flavours.

This cooks very quickly in the oven to perfection  . . .  you will know its done when the fish flakes easily with the tines of a fork.

The mustard is mixed with some honey, mayonnaise and vinegar to create a beautiful sauce, which you just brush over the salmon fillets. I often double the sauce recipe to use as a dipping sauce for when I go to serve it.

Can you ever have too much honey mustard sauce???  I don't think so!!

Panko bread crumbs make for a nice crisp finish in the crumb topping.  You can of course use whole wheat Panko if you want to be a bit healthier and if you can find it!

Honey Mustard Salmon

Altogether this is really delicious!

I didn't get a photo of it plated up, but we enjoyed it with some lovely buttery mashed potatoes and  some steamed broccoli spears.  

It was a really nice supper and quite healthy as well. The quantities given in the recipe are for two portions but can very easily be doubled to feed more.  This would also make a fabulous dinner party entree!

  1. This was dinner last night and was delicious. I buy salmon fillets a lot, so it's nice to have a different flavour combination to try. You are right in that honey/mustard combination is a marriage made in heaven. We served ours with boiled potatoes, peas and buttered carrots.

    1. Sounds like a beautiful presentation Marie. This truly is a brilliant combination of flavours! Thanks so much for taking the time to share your experience with us! xoxo
