Made with minimal ingredients and ready in under 30 minutes, this honey mustard salmon is a perfect weeknight meal. Not to mention, with its sweet and sticky flavour and texture, it’s sure to be a hit with the whole family.
I’ve actually already shared a very similar recipe to this one with my curried honey mustard chicken, which happens to be one of the most popular recipes on my blog, so I figured why not do something similar with salmon?
In truth, these marinades are completely interchangeable and they will also work well on pork, turkey and white fish alike. Not only are these types of marinade great because they are made with common ingredients, but they are also a great way to introduce fish dishes to people who aren’t super keen on seafood. The combination of sweet and savoury helps to mask some of that “fishy” flavour for those who aren’t accustomed to it, and the extra sauce is the perfect addition to a side dish like rice, potatoes or veggies.
Plus, after a long day of work, there is nothing better than a quick and easy meal that is packed full of flavour and this honey mustard salmon is exactly that! Just stir the marinade ingredients together, pour them over the salmon, pop it in the oven, and sit back and relax while it does all of the work.
