Hubby and I eat salmon on a fairly regular basis. We both really enjoy the flavor and it’s just so easy to prepare. We usually just season the salmon with salt and pepper and throw it in the oven to roast. Since we eat it so frequently, I’m always keeping my eye out for a new way to prepare it.
I first made this herbed mustard salmon a couple years ago. Since then, it has become a regular in our dinnertime rotation, but I just never got around to photographing it and posting it for you guys. I like to use whatever mustard we have on hand (which usually includes more than one option) and whatever herbs we have on hand. I like this combination of parsley, rosemary, and dijon the best.
