Hi Frankly My Dear readers!
My name is Hope & I’m so excited to be guest posting for Jenni while she’s in China.
I had the pleasure of meeting & becoming friends with Jenni at our alma mater, Murray State University. I’m so thankful for social media & snail mail for helping us to keep in touch despite the distance. You can learn more about my life as a believer, wife, & registered dietitian over at my blog, Oh Taste & See.
Today I’m sharing a delicious, simple, and healthy recipe for Mustard Glazed Salmon. I encourage my patients to eat seafood such as salmon, tuna, herring, or sardines at least 2-3 times a week. These rich sources of omega-3 fatty acids promote heart and brain health!
When I look for weeknight recipes I keep a couple things in mind: Are the ingredients real, whole foods? & Are the steps relativity simple?
I totally respect & admire complex, sophisticated recipes but after I get home from work I want to spend time with my husband and our puppies, not be in the kitchen the rest of the night. Save the long recipes for the weekend! As far as ingredients go, I believe in choosing whole, minimally processed options in order to improve & maintain health. I’m a fan of short ingredient lists in recipes and on food labels. I also love supporting local farmers & vendors.
Mustard Glazed Salmon
4 frozen wild caught salmon fillets, thawed
2 tablespoons whole grain mustard
1 1/2 tablespoon local honey
1 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Freshly cracked black pepper
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Place thawed fillets in a baking dish.
Combine the remaining ingredients in a small bowl.
Adjust seasonings and flavors to taste.
Spoon sauce over the salmon.
Bake for about 10 minutes or until desired doneness.
I am notorious for “eyeballing” amounts in recipes so feel free to adjust the ingredient amounts to suit your own preferences. I love the sweet, tangy flavor of the sauce and the texture of the whole grain mustard. I served our salmon with some curried quinoa and sautéed zucchini.
