Honey Dijon Glazed Salmon

This evening's cooking venture was inspired (and recipe provided) by @josie_tao. Josie's Honey Dijon Glazed Salmon recipe can be summarized in 420 characters (or 3 tweets from Twitter). Yes it is that simple according to her and was it? Well ... yes I do think so and I might do it again very soon! Simple yet delicious! Since baked salmon alone would not be enough for me so I added an extra side dish, buttery mashed potatoes! My recipe is a little bit longer than a few tweets or text messages. :)



Recipe
  • 2 salmon fillets (with or without skin depends on your preference)
  • Dijon Mustard - 2 tablespoon
  • Olive Oil - 1 tablespoon
  • Honey - 1 tablespoon
  • Lemon Juice - 1/2 tablespoon
  • Potatoes (a few)
  • Butter
  • Salt and Pepper
Step 1 - peel potatoes and chop into pieces. Bring water to boil and put potatoes in for about 10 mins. Use this time to work on the rest of the items. Pre-heat oven to 160C.



Step 2 - mix the Dijon Mustard, Olive Oil and Honey together. Should get something like the following.



Step 3 - Rub or apply the mixture all over the salmon.



Step 4 - Place on oven tray and let it bake for 10 mins at 160C for medium cooked salmon.



Step 5 - Drain the potatoes and put into a deep bowl



Step 6 - Time to (s)mash the potatoes!!! Mash it to the desired smoothness / texture.



Step 7 - Add in butter (there is no such thing as too much better right?) and some salt and pepper. Mix well and TRY NOT TO EAT ALL OF THEM while mixing! TRY your best.



Step 8 - add more salt and pepper if need



Step 9 - the baked salmon should be done.



Step 10 - plating (the mashed potatoes are pretty hard to plate in my opinion) and garnish with some parsley flakes if you want. Enjoy!!!!

Yum! I love honey mustard as a dipping sauce for chips, real chips, not crisps. Instead of mustard, I've used soy sauce and it has worked well for salmon and chicken wings. Keep up the hard work, Jason! :)
