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!

- 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
- Preheat the broiler to 400 degrees
- 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.
- Cut your salmon fillets into two equal pieces and then salt and pepper to taste.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray evenly with olive oil (I love using my Misto for this).
- Place salmon on baking sheet and then place in the oven, broil for 2 minutes.
- Remove salmon and dab the mustard marinade evenly over the top of the salmon pieces.
- Broil for an additional 3 or 5 min. Keep an eye on it, especially if it is a thinner cut.
- Garnish with lemon wedges
