On the salmon hype still (forever), and still on this experimental hype as well. This is my next dish! Mustard and honey roasted salmon with roasted veg and buttery new potatoes. The best thing about this is that you can cook it for your week prep meals!
The salmon I’m using for this recipe is Wild Alaskan Salmon, this fish is a darker orange colour and full of vitamins and minerals, as well as having a great flavor. The difference between farmed fish and this is massive, i didn’t even notice it before, but now i know i know.
Again when I wanted to make this dish I wanted to make it super simple and easy as well as being something that could be frozen and/or done as a meal prep for the week…again all about saving those £££ at Pret. This is a super quick and easy dish as well as being healthy and tasting good.
To start I boiled the new potatoes, potatoes get a bad rep for being unhealthy, but give them a break- everyone needs some potato love in their life.
I then prepped the veg; courgette, pepper, red onion, spring onions, broccoli and kale. Chopped and did a little dance with them and then put them into a deep baking tray, covered in olive oil, added some garlic cloves, salt and paprika.
Drained the potatoes and put them in a pan with butter and garlic salt and cooked them a little more- them pop them into the baking tray.
Put this into the oven at 180 degrees fan oven.
Then we move onto the fish, in a little pot put the mustard, honey and mustard grains and mix it up, add some salt and finely chopped garlic and pour/drizzle/throw onto the salmon.Pop into the oven with the veg (I used 2 different baking trays but you don’t have to) and cook for 10-15 mins.
Once they are cooked, I moved the salmon on top of the veg for it to be eaten straight away, but this can be separated out easily to make prep lunches for the week. Its so easy to cover a couple of fillets of salmon in the marinade and have through out the week for lunch/ dinner.
What I used:
- 2 Wild Alaskan Salmon Fillets
- English Mustard
- Mustard Seeds
- New Potatoes
