Hello from the salmon addicts with this honey mustard glazed salmon. With rice, salad, burger buns, pita or whatever fits. Just give me pulled salmon. You’ve probably realized how much we love salmon. Did you already try our Salmon with Pomegranate?
This recipe is glazed with thick homemade honey-mustard dill sauce, baked in the oven on low temperature, so the sauce nicely melts all over. Served with homemade pita bread and lime skyr dip and guacamole.
Is salmon healthy?
I actually had a discussion a couple of days ago, if salmon is healthy because of the high ft amount….Guys, seriously? Let me give you a quick nutrition 101 lesson. 🙂
Salmon is a healthy fish that is rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s are necessary in a diet because the human body cannot make them. Omega-3s are thought to help reduce blood pressure, lessen inflammation and help protect against cancer.
Salmon is full of nutrients such as protein and B vitamins and also vitamins A and D. Salmon also contains more exotic nutrients such as selenium, potassium,and phosphorus. This combination of nutrients and vitamins is thought to support brain function, immunity and strong bones. Eating salmon is a delicious way to get vital nutrients.
This should make it pretty clear, how important fatty acids are for your body and how beneficial it is, to eat salmon… Of course not every day!
What is a salmon glaze?
We want to glaze the salmon, to achieve a shiny coating on the food. That means the salmon glaze is simply salmon that is coated in a shiny syrup. Therefore we use honey mixed with mustard and fresh dill. With the honey, you get flavor and color.
This honey mustard glazed salmon make your dinner perfect. The salmon is sweet from honey and slightly tangy from the mustard. This simple glaze not only gives the fillets an eye-catching sheen, but it also gives them a deep golden tint.
