Mustard Glazed Salmon

I’ve been trying to serve more fish to my family. The only problem with this is fish is so freaking expensive right now. Actually, what is not expensive any more? I do all of the grocery shopping, and I look at prices all of the time. Everything is going up! I often joke with my wife that we need to sell our house, and take whatever profit and buy some land, and raise our own animals, and grow our own produce, among other things. Wishful thinking I suppose. Regardless, some nice salmon was on sale the other day, and I decided to pick up a fillet. As I was not certain what I was going to do with it, and as I was leaning towards smoking it, I decided to go another route, and coat this bad boy with a nice mustard glaze.

Mustard Glazed Salmon Recipe

 

I don’t know what I loved more about this mustard glazed salmon, the glaze, or the crispy skin. Trust me, this was a huge hit with my wife and kids, well two of the kids.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp yellow mustard
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/4 lb salmon fillet
  • generous pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter

Start by adding the mustard, honey, and garlic to a small mixing bowl. Mix really well and set it to the side.

Next, heat a large skillet on medium heat. Let it heat until it begins to lightly smoke.

Add in the oil, give it a swirl, and then add in the salmon fillet, skin side down. Season with salt.

Let this cook for about 4 minutes, then with a large spatula, carefully flip it over. The skin should be nice and crisp.

How to make mustard glazed salmonNext, start brushing the mustard and honey mixture on top of the salmon. Continue to brush for the next few minutes. Add in the pad of butter, and swirl it in the skillet. Cook until the salmon is fully cooked, about 10 minutes total.

Remove it from the skillet, and pour over any additional sauce.

My family devoured this one. As my wife is not a fan of mustard (I did not tell her that was part of the glaze), she loved it. We ate this for dinner, and lunch the following day. I took the honor of eating the crispy salmon skin. I love that stuff. So if you are you looking for a great salmon recipe, give this one a shot. Hope you enjoy!

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
