Salmon, dill and mustard are a pretty classic combination, but not one I make very frequently...maybe ever. I found this whole grain mustard at Aldi for a great price and picked it up. One night when I had no idea what to make for dinner, slathering some salmon with this mustard and dill just seemed like a good idea, and it was. It's tasty and quick, and requires only three ingredients. I will definitely be making this again. Served with a salad or baked potato/sweet potato, you've got a great meal.
Since Drew and I are the only ones for whom I almost ever make salmon, I am used to making a 2 person portion- I don't try to have salmon leftovers because they're not the best. If you have more people to feed, this recipe is so easily adjusted. Just add more mustard and dill.
1- 4 inch (maybe 1/2 lb) piece salmon
1/4 cup good quality mustard (whole grain, dijon, etc)
1 tsp dried dill
Mix the dill and the mustard together and spread in an even layer over the top of your salmon. Bake the salmon at 400 F for about 8-10 minutes, checking for doneness after 8 minutes. For a crisper crust try broiling, but watch it carefully!
