So my husband and I are not big seafood people, however we love a good piece of salmon. My dad is known for his lemon salmon recipe (which I will post for you soon). That being said we’re kind of picky when it comes to trying new salmon recipes. This is a recipe from Giada de Laurentiis that was a big hit for us! My husband said “you’ve gooottt to post this on the blog.” Needless to say…he loved it! I am used to lighter salmon recipes and this one is a little heavier and creamier and really nice for a change.
Sorry my pictures do not do any of these meals justice!!!
Prep: 10-15 minutes
Cook: 7-15 minutes (depending on how thick the piece of salmon is)
Ingredients (including my adaptations)
- 3 or 4 garlic cloves
- 3/4 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
- 3/4 teaspoon finely chopped fresh thyme leaves
- 1 tablespoon dry white wine
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 4 tablespoons Country Dijon Mustard
- Nonstick olive oil cooking spray
- 6 (6 to 8-ounce) salmon fillets
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 6 lemon wedges
In a mini food processor, combine garlic, rosemary, thyme, wine, oil, Dijon mustard, and 3 tablespoons of mustard. Grind the mustard sauce until combined, about 30 seconds. Transfer to a small bowl. Add remaining 1 tablespoon of mustard to the sauce and stir to combine. Set aside mustard sauce.
Preheat the broiler. Line a heavy rimmed baking sheet with foil. Spray the foil with nonstick spray. Arrange the salmon fillets on the baking sheet and sprinkle them with salt and pepper. Broil for 2 minutes. Spoon the mustard sauce over the fillets. Continue broiling until the fillets are just cooked through and golden brown, about 5-13 minutes longer.
Transfer the fillets to plates and serve with lemon wedges.
Happy Eating 🙂
