Recipe Share Sunday: Honey Mustard Salmon

Ok, ok.... I know I've kinda fallen off the Recipe Share Sunday wagon the last few weeks... but it was the holidays and shiz.... so I'm back and with a recipe that I found on my Genuardi's receipt... seriously.

I made this probably a month ago or so, but I was in the midst of sharing cookie recipes at the time so I put it on the back burner...  I took lots of pics for a step-by-step picture tutorial...

I'd give the dish a 3.5 out of 5... wasn't the best, and honestly probably won't make it again any time soon, but was definitely a welcome variation to making salmon.  There are so many ways to make salmon, but we rarely stray from steamed or broiled.... so it was nice to have some infused flavor.  Enjoy!

1/2 C mayo
2 tbsp deli mustard
2 green onions, chopped
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
pinch of salt
4 salmon fillets (approx 1lb)

1. In medium bowl, combine all ingredients except salmon

kinda gross looking... but tasty.. tasting?? yes.. tasty tasting.

2. Set aside 1/3 of mayo mixture in separate bowl. Brush salmon with 2/3 mixture in glass bottom pan.

3. Grill or Broil salmon, brushing with mixture. Turn once Cook until salmon flakes easily with fork
4. Serve with remaining mayo mixture, If desired garnish with chopped green onions.

To be like us, serve with Brown Rice and Veggies - for a balanced meal ;)

  1. Looks delish! I will have to try this. I am trying to convince FI that it's okay to eat something other than chicken and beef. He lovesss mustard so this might be a winner, haha :)

  2. It was definitely a nice change to plain salmon.

    I think the only thing I'd tweak (and I probably should have mentioned this in my post) is that I would reduce the amount of mayo. It was a little thicker/creamier than I would have expected. I think I would prefer it to be a little lighter.

    Let me know if you try it!

  3. looks yum! must try this recipe soon!
