Broiled Salmon with Herb Mustard Glaze

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.

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

Directions

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 🙂
