Honey Mustard Salmon

Ingredients

• 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

• 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

• 2 tablespoons honey

• 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest

• 4 (5-ounce) salmon fillets

• Salt and ground black pepper

• Cooking spray

Directions In an oiled shallow baking dish, combine lemon juice, Dijon, honey, and lemon zest. Stir together. Season both sides of salmon fillets with salt and pepper and place in the baking dish. Flip salmon to coat in glaze. Bake immediately or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 3 hours. When ready to cook, preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Bake 10 minutes or until fish is fork-tender. Recipe found at: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/robin-miller/honey-mustard-glazed-salmon-fillets-recipe/index.html

Comments: The salmon does NOT cook in 10 minutes. I had to cook my fillets for almost 30 minutes. Granted, I like my salmon on the more well down side, however, cook the salmon for at least 20 minutes so it isn’t raw. The salmon turned out to have, in my opinion, a very mild flavor. On the other hand my mother did not really like it. If you do not enjoy mustards than this is not the recipe for you. But if you like mustard than this is a quick and easy recipe to try and spice up your boring salmon.
