This is a Giada recipe that we tweeked only out of necessity. It was super tasty, and a super quick way to enjoy a delicious salmon dinner!
- 1 garlic cloves
- 1/4 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves (dried is ok, too)
- 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves (use fresh if you have it!)
- 1/2 tablespoon dry white wine
- 1/2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard (we only had Trader Joe’s Garlic Dijon Mustard Aioli, so we used 2 Tbsp of that!)
- 1 tablespoons whole-grain mustard (use this if you have it! see above!)
- Nonstick olive oil cooking spray
- 2 6 ounce salmon fillets
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 3 lemon wedges (optional)
In a mini food processor, combine garlic, rosemary, thyme, wine, oil, mustard. Grind the mustard sauce until combined, about 30 seconds. Transfer to a small bowl. Set aside mustard sauce.
Preheat the broiler. Line a heavy rimmed baking sheet with foil. Spray the foil with nonstick spray. Arrange the salmon fillets on the baking sheet and sprinkle them with salt and pepper. Broil for 2 minutes. Spoon the mustard sauce over the fillets. Continue broiling until the fillets are just cooked through and golden brown, about 5 minutes longer.
Transfer the fillets to plates and serve with lemon wedges.
This is a Giada De Laurentiis recipe that we found in a her Everyday Italian cookbook. You can also find it here. We halved the recipe because there are just 2 of us!
