This post has been written in partnership with Maille. All opinions are mine alone.
It’s no secret I am all about flavor and finding easy ways to kick my flavors up a notch is always my agenda. It’s amazing what a spoonful of Maille can do! With this recipe, I’ll show you how to use Maille Dijon Originale Mustard and Maille Old Style Mustard to take your salmon recipes from average to excellent.
But first, let’s jump into the ingredients
Maille has a long history dating back to the eighteenth century when its herbal vinegar was used to help fight plague in France. Mustard itself is known for its antimicrobial properties.
We all love garlic, right! Well, garlic contains a compound called that allicin that is pretty special (and it’s what gives garlic its distinctive smell). When you cut into garlic, this component is released along with other antioxidants that help fight off infection and support your immune system.
I started using turmeric spice many years ago when I first became aware of its many benefits. Turmeric comes from the root of the Curcuma plant and helps prevent your immune system from dropping below the necessary levels in addition to giving it a boost. It’s good for gut health too and also acts as an anti-inflammatory.
Oily fish like salmon is a good source of vitamin B. Vitamin B keeps the immune system working properly by regulating inflammation and keeping those red and white blood cells in check.
Now back to this recipe…
Aside from the salmon, there are very few ingredients used to create this dish. And the standout star is the honey mustard glaze. It is the perfect combination of tangy and sweet.
But you can use just any dijon mustard or whole grain mustard for salmon. The quality of mustard you use does make a difference and you can taste that difference with Maille.
The glaze is a simple sauce using only five ingredients: Maille Old Style Mustard, Maille Dijon Originale, turmeric, and garlic. I used two types of Maille mustard to create the perfect combination of taste and texture and results in a glaze that complements the fish.
How to make Honey Mustard Glazed Salmon
Cut your salmon filet into two-inch wide pieces.
Season your salmon with salt and pepper and place them into a baking dish. You can adjust this according to your taste.
In a small bowl, add the Maille Old Style Mustard and Maille Dijon Originale Mustard along with the remaining ingredients and whisk until smooth.
Cover each salmon piece evenly with the honey mustard sauce and bake for 11 minutes. That’s it!
When you want a tasty salmon recipe, this Honey Mustard Glazed Salmon is spot on and filled with the good stuff. Not only will your taste buds ring, but your digestive system will also thank you too.
