These kind of recipes are great to have in your back pocket for busy weeknights, like Blackened Tilapia and Weeknight Chicken Parmesan! One of my favourite little tips for quick midweek meals with flavours that pack a punch is to use a sauce that doubles as a marinade. Or, in this case, as a glaze – no marinating required for this salmon!

The glaze / sauce for this recipe is actually just a slight adaptation of a classic Honey Mustard Dressing. What I like to do is make big batches of the dressing and keep it in the fridge – it lasts for weeks and weeks as long as you don’t use any fresh ingredients in it like garlic. So I make up the basic Honey Mustard Dressing with cider vinegar, honey, mustard, oil, salt and pepper and keep it in the fridge. I use it plain to dress salads, sometimes I might add a bit of garlic.

AND I use it to marinate meats, or, such as for this recipe, as a glaze and/or sauce!

Incredibly simple to make, it's quite amazing how so few ingredients can transform into something as tasty as this Honey Mustard Salmon.

Salmon is my favorite fish. I love that it has so much flavour already and is so juicy, so actually it doesn’t even need any marinating time to infuse the centre with flavour. Plus, this has a sauce.

My one big rule with salmon is to never OVERCOOK IT!! There is nothing sadder than cutting into a beautiful piece of salmon to find it dry inside, rather than juicy and flaky. The way I check to see when I salmon is cooked is to watch the side of the salmon. When the middle of the fillet changes to opaque,  it means that it is cooked.

And don’t forget, salmon continues to cook while resting!

I served this Honey Mustard Salmon with some mashed potato and seared asparagus (seared in a dry pan for optimum char). For an even quicker meal, I’d usually just have toasted bread on the side with a fresh green salad – use the sauce as the dressing for the salad!

Hope you enjoy!
