Honey-Mustard Glazed Salmon

We bought some great-looking wild salmon fillets from Outpost when they were on sale a while ago. I've had a hankerin' for salmon lately, so when we decided to make them, I busted out my Betty Crocker Cookbook to find a recipe.

I found a great, super easy one that turned out really well and tasted great (although, as usual, we cooked the salmon a little too long).

Honey-Mustard Glazed Salmon

  • 1 Tb. packed brown sugar

  • 1 Tbs. butter, melted

  • 1 Tbs. soy sauce

  • 1 Tbs. honey

  • 1 Tbs. mustard (we used Dijon)

  • 1 Tbs. olive oil

  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped

  • 1 lb. salmon fillet

Mix all ingredients (other than salmon) in a bowl. Place salmon in a baking dish and coat it with marinade. Place in fridge up to an hour (but at least 15 minutes).

The recipe says to broil the fish, but we don't have a broiling pan, so we just baked it. We baked the fish (if I remember correctly--I should have written it down!) at 375* for about 20 minutes. But be sure to check the fish every five minutes or so to make sure you're not overcooking it.

We served the fish with a random package of flavored chickpeas I got at Trader Joe's a while ago (they were pretty good!) and asparagus with our favorite sauce (much like the salmon marinade, we just combined 1 Tbs. honey, 1 Tbs. mustard and 1 Tbs. olive oil. Drizzle over asparagus).
