Salmon with a Mustard Glaze

this is the same recipe with sliced lemons on top also a delicious variation

IMG_7557 IMG_7571Here is another delicious Salmon recipe and so super easy. This is a light easy to make dinner perfect Spring Time Meal.  I made this for dinner last night and it was ready in no time and tasted truly delicious.It is light and easy, it doesn’t get much easier than this. The whole recipe took less than 1/2 hour to prep and cook! Depending on how thick your salmon is it could take no more than 10 minutes to fully cook right in the oven. Very few ingredients and a perfect dinner casual enough for just you and your family and can be bumped up to serve to guests. This is a winner.Last night I served with potatoes and a salad.  Almost any side dish will do alongside this.

Roasted Brussels on another night were also perfect.

Enjoy!

Ingredients:

3 Tablespoons Olive Oil

1 heaping Tablespoon Dijon Mustard

1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice (app. 1 average size lemon)

Kosher Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper ( about 1/4 tsp. of each)

4 pieces Salmon fillets ( app. 6 oz. each) with skin on

*sprinkle a little fresh thyme if you’d like!!!

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Spray a baking dish with cooking spray to facilitate removal of fish not to mention clean-up.

In a small bowl, mix together olive oil, mustard, lemon juice, and 1/4 teaspoon each kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. I used a mini whisk and it came together beautifully.

Place Salmon, skin side down in a baking dish , and spoon mustard glaze over each piece of fish. Bake until salmon is just cooked through and no longer red, 6 – 10 minutes depending on the thickness of your fillet. I added a sprinkle of some fresh thyme right before I cooked and it added some more delicious flavor, this is totally optional.

Voila! done and enjoy. I served this time with a delicious lentil side dish.

Salmon Glazed with Brown Sugar and Dijon Mustard

Ththis is how I made it the next time with roasted string beans and rice pilaf

This is such a simple recipe it’s a no recipe recipe. From the NYT cooking site @nytimes.com/recipe by Sam Sifton. Depending on the size of your fish this could take up to 1/2 hour for prep and cooking or 15 minutes if you have a small piece of fish. The prep could not be any easier and this time  I served with roasted string beans and rice pilaf and roasted cauliflower. The first time I made it I paired it with roast brussels sprouts and rice.   Any nice green vegetable will do or cauliflower which is also shown in one of the pics. Use as much or as little glaze as you’d like and you’re in control of the ingredients.  Super easy and salmon so readily available. I bought organically farmed at Whole Foods. Wild or organically farmed is preferred here.

salmon with roast stringbeans, rice pilaf and roast cauliflower

Ingredients:

I used 2 Salmon Fillets for the 2 of us– app. 8 oz. each I like Farmed Organically or Wild and the next time I made it I asked for a mid cut piece of Salmon app. 1 to 1 1/2 lb. all about the same thickness and only 1 piece — whatever works best for you

Dijon Mustard

Brown Sugar

Kosher Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Directions:

Heat oven to 400 degrees

Make a mixture of Dijon Mustard and brown sugar, start with small amounts and increase how much mustard to brown sugar you like.

Salt and Pepper the salmon fillets

I spray a baking sheet with cooking spray, place the fillets skin side down. Slather the tops of the fillets with the glaze and put them in the top half of the oven.

Roast for about 12-15 minutes depending on your oven and how much you like salmon to cook.

I served alongside Rice and Roasted Brussels Sprouts. And roasted string beans and roasted cauliflower.

Ingredients:

3 Tablespoons Olive Oil

1 heaping Tablespoon Dijon Mustard

1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice (app. 1 average size lemon)

Kosher Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper ( about 1/4 tsp. of each)

4 pieces Salmon fillets ( app. 6 oz. each) with skin on

*sprinkle a little fresh thyme if you’d like!!! and you can use a sprinkle of dried thyme as well.

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Spray a baking dish with cooking spray to facilitate removal of fish not to mention clean-up.

In a small bowl, mix together olive oil, mustard, lemon juice, and 1/4 teaspoon each kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. I used a mini whisk and it came together beautifully.

Place Salmon, skin side down in a baking dish , and spoon mustard glaze over each piece of fish. Bake until salmon is just cooked through and no longer red, 6 – 10 minutes depending on the thickness of your fillet. I then turned on the broiler for a few minutes, check to see if fish is done before doing this. You don’t want it over-cooked. I cooked in oven for 6 minutes and then broiled for 4. It was done to perfection. You don’t have to do the broiler you can just cook the salmon in the oven for about 10 minutes. You might want to check on it depending on the thickness of your filet.

Sometimes I just put lemon slices on the salmon before I cook it– gives it a more lemony flavor and looks very pretty and I happen to have a lot of lemons in the house.

Voila! done and enjoy. I served this time with a delicious lentil side dish.
