I love salmon. I like to try it prepared in different ways. My favorite method, however is plain — salt, pepper, and then placed in the oven.
I saw this mustard sauce recipe and wanted to try it. Salmon with herbs and mustard sauce? Hmm.. How interesting.
I finally prepared my salmon, using this recipe. It was okay. Just okay. It wasn’t bad. But it wasn’t wow. I may try this recipe again, but if I don’t I’ll be okay.
Salmon with Herb Mustard Sauce
adapted from Giada’s Family Dinners
as seen on lattes and leggings
serves 2 to 3
1 pound salmon
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon dijon mustard (such as Grey Poupon)
1 tablespoon country dijon mustard (such as Grey Poupon)
1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1 tablespoon dry white wine
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 lemon, cut into wedges
Preheat the oven to 350 degree F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place the salmon on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 10 minutes. While the salmon is baking, make the herb mustard sauce.
In a small bowl, add the garlic, both mustards, rosemary, thyme, white wine, and olive oil. Stir together until combined and smooth. Set aside.
Remove salmon from the oven, and spoon the mustard sauce over the salmon. Continue baking for another 5 to 7 minutes, until the salmon is cooked to medium. Serve with lemon wedges.
