Creamy Mustard Salmon
Mustard’s spicy, pungent and acidic taste complements salmon really well. Cream it up with some half and half or cream. Zest it up with fresh or dried herbs–dill or oregano work really well. Bake or grill it. And you have an amazingly delicious salmon dish. Marinate it if you can. I didn’t marinate mine and it was still spectacular.
Creamy Mustard Salmon Recipe
1 to 1 ¼ pounds salmon fillet
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
4 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons half and half or heavy cream
1 teaspoon dried oregano (optional)
Squeeze the lemon juice on the salmon fillet then season it with salt and pepper.
Whisk the mustard with the half and half until creamy. Brush the salmon with the creamy mustard. Sprinkle it with dried oregano. Reserve the remaining creamy mustard for basting the salmon.
Preheat the grill. Grill the salmon until it flakes easily, 5 to 7 minutes per side, basting it occasionally with the rest of the creamy mustard.
Serve with couscous or a salad.
