Salmon with Herbed Mustard Sauce

Salmon with Herbed mustard sauce

Wild Alaskan salmon is one of the most nutritious foods available.  It is a fish that is full of the essential omega-3 fatty acids that our body needs.  I wrote an article in Bella Magazine that gives a lot of information about fats. I also have more information about fats in this article on my site.

Salmon is  packed with protein, vitamins B-12 and D as well as many other micronutrients.  But I recommend using only wild caught, preferably Alaskan, when you cook.  Many farm-raised fish are grown in less than healthy conditions and can even have toxins in them due to their growing conditions.

This recipe makes a delicious and nutritious main entree that can be on the table in 30 minutes or less.  Add one or two vegetables plus a serving of quinoa for a well rounded dinner for your family.

Salmon with Herbed Mustard Sauce

Serves 4

1 lb. salmon cut into 4 fillets
4 Tablespoons lemon juice
½ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
½ cup stone-ground mustard mustard
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon dried dill
1 teaspoon dried basil

Heat broiler in oven.  Rinse salmon and pat dry with paper towels.  Place fish on broiler pan and drizzle 2 tablespoons lemon juice over all.  Season with salt and pepper. Meanwhile in a bowl, stir together the mustard, remaining lemon juice, olive oil, dill and basil.  Top the fish pieces with the sauce.  Broil until fish is just cooked, about 10-15 minutes.
Spoon the remaining sauce over the cooked salmon to serve.
