He asked me to make more salmon recipes so I made this amazing, absolutely delicious honey mustard baked salmon for him.
Recently, I have been playing with east-meets-west cooking techniques, marrying Asian ingredients with western recipes and the end result is always so much more delicious than the original recipe.
For this classic honey mustard style of cooking, I decided to give it a slight twist, with Japanese flavors.
Sake is Japanese rice wine and I love a bit of alcohol in my food. The sake rids the salmon of fishy smell and taste, and gives depth to the overall taste structure.
To spice up this honey mustard baked salmon, I also added a good pinch of cayenne pepper, which is my secret ingredient to jazz things up.
As you can see, this recipe is absolutely scrumptious and mouthwatering. The salmon is glistening with the honey mustard marinade. The salmon is juicy and mild tasting with no fishy smell.
Little G gave me 3 thumbs way up again and finished his dinner in no time. The active time is practically 10 minutes, so add this to your weekly dinner rotation. Enjoy!!
