Honey Dijon Salmon with Peas and Perogies

So a certain level of laziness and grocery depletion led me to this meal. I had bought the salmon to be healthy and stuff and I was going to make a soy sauce and citrus glaze.. but I surprisingly have no soy sauce (not really surprising since I hate it in general.. but who doesn't have some on hand rotting in the back of the fridge??)I've made honey mustard salmon before, but seeing I was out of that too, I mixed honey and Dijon mustard to make this glaze/sauce. (I really had myself going , thinking I was a genius of flavour when I recalled that there are Honey Dijon chips, sauces, and McNugget dips... foiled again by McDonald's. Yarg!)

A little salmon here, some frozen peas and perogies there, throw in a (slightly old) carrot and you've got a meal.
Honey Dijon Salmon

1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp honey
Salt and pepper
2 salmon fillets, washed, patted dry and checked for bones

Cooked veggies
Cooked Rice/Noodles/Perogies

1. Set oven to 350c.

2. Line oven ready pan with tin foil or parchment paper. Salt and pepper the fish and place fillets on tin foil, skin down. Mix honey and Dijon mustard. Coat Salmon.

3. Cook fish in oven for 10-15 minutes until fish is almost done. It should be light pink on the outside, and leaking white ooze stuff (that's protein!) The interior should still be the original darker flesh colour. You don't want to overcook salmon!

4.Turn oven to broil and cook for 5 minutes. Be sure it doesn't burn... cause it can.. don't ask me how I know...

5. Serve with veggies and starchies (or perogies!).

6. Eat a blood orange!



  1. I need to come over for dinner more often!

  2. My kitchen is open to all.
