Heart healthy and full of Omega-3′s, salmon should be on the modern family menu once a week. My three children are not on board with this yet, but I still ask them to try it now and then. You never know when they will develop a taste for it.
This is the simplest and most delicious salmon recipe I have found yet. I like to double the recipe and keep it in my fridge for lunches during the week. I can put it on a salad, wrap it in a tortilla or mix it with quinoa for a quick, healthy lunch.
It’s perfect for a dinner party since it requires mimimal prep and a quick cook time. It can be broiled or cooked on the grill. Always a crowd pleaser.
I discovered this recipe in Giada De Laurentiis’, cookbook Giada’s Family Dinners. I am a huge fan of hers and I am anxiously awaiting the release of her next cookbook, Weeknights With Giada. I have been DVRing her show for years and years. I changed this recipe a tiny bit but the idea is all Giada’s. Thanks Giada!
- 1 garlic clove minced
- 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
- 1 tbsp whole grain mustard
- 1 tbsp dry white wine
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 4 salmon fillets (I like to ask the fishmonger for the center cut so I don’t have the thin ends that burn)
Mix the first 5 ingredients in a small bowl. Put the fillets on a foil lined baking pan sprayed with non-stick spray. Salt and pepper the salmon.
Cook under the broiler 4 inches from heat for about 2 minutes. Don’t forget to leave the oven door open a crack. Brush the mustard sauce on and cook for 5 minutes longer until the salmon begins to brown on top.
