Mustard Glazed Salmon served with Asparagus and Spaghetti Squash

Salmon is one of the best sources for omega 3 fatty acids.

Did you know that salmon is also a great source of protein, niacin, B6, B12, Potassium, Magnesium and Selenium?

It’s so nice to find a recipe for salmon that doesn’t have sugar in it! This tastes really wonderful without it too. When buying salmon, look for wild caught and steer clear of the farm-raised. They have a completely different nutritional profile and are no longer an omega 3. Not to mention they usually contain antibiotics too, which end up in your body. YUCK!

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoon whole grain mustard
  • 2 teaspoon dijon mustard (I like Organicville’s product because they don’t add the corn syrup sweeteners)
  • 1 teaspoon cold pressed olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dry white wine
  • 1/4 teaspoon finely chopped rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon finely chopped thyme
  • 1 small clove garlic

 

  • 2 salmon fillets  (about 1/2 lb)
  • cold pressed olive oil  (I use my “Misto” to spray my favorite oil of choice, lightly over the fish)
  • sea salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 lemon

Directions

  1. Preheat the broiler to 400 degrees
  2. Mix the first seven ingredients together to make the marinade and set aside to let the flavors meld together (you can mix in a food processor or Vitamix, excluding 1 tsp whole grain mustard if you want that seedy texture. Otherwise just throw it all in and mix.
  3. Cut your salmon fillets into two equal pieces and then salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray evenly with olive oil (I love using my Misto for this).
  5. Place salmon on baking sheet and then place in the oven, broil for 2 minutes.
  6. Remove salmon and dab the mustard marinade evenly over the top of the salmon pieces.
  7. Broil for an additional 3 or 5 min. Keep an eye on it, especially if it is a thinner cut.
  8. Garnish with lemon wedges
