Brown Sugar Dijon Glazed Salmon

It’s time. Thus far this year I’ve brought you two desserts, irresistible mashed potatoes and a bread recipe.  It’s time to get a little healthy. 

We are going to get healthy my favorite way possible, by eating some fish! Whenever I feel like I’ve consumed too much bad for me food, I go for a dinner of roasted salmon or pan-seared flounder and I instantly feel better.  If I’m feeling festive I’ll whip up some fish tacos!

Fish dinners just have some magical healing powers for me.  I don’t know if it’s their heart healthy fats, the low calories or the fact that I can never really stuff myself when I prepare it.  

What’s your favorite type of fish to make for dinner? 

Since I do my best not get stuck in my cooking rut, I decided to change things up a little bit and do a simple brown sugar and dijon glaze on my salmon.  French dijon mustard gives the salmon a nice spicy kick and the little bit of brown sugar mellows it out enough to not clear your sinus’ through dinner. 🙂
