Roasted Salmon with Balsamic Mustard Glaze

Roasted Salmon with Balsamic Mustard Glaze

So, the health powers that be say I should be eating fish twice per week in the interest of living longer and healthier. I can do that…I think. I have never been a huge seafood eater. Growing up I pretty much ate shrimp, and that was it. No salmon, tuna, crab or lobster. As an adult I generally still eat mild seafood such as tilapia or mahi mahi. Or the ultimate in healthy…crab or lobster masked by a delicious, creamy mayonnaise and cheese concoction. Yummy!

My sister makes a delicious salmon with an apple glaze so I knew I could handle salmon. Maybe she will let me post her recipe here some day (hint, hint, Jennifer).  The one thing I really wanted though was something especially easy to make. That’s how Roasted Salmon with Balsamic Mustard Glaze was born. Place salmon on parchment paper, season, roast in oven, add glaze. See? Easy.  If you are trying to up your intake of healthy seafood, or if you just like salmon, give this recipe a try soon. You will enjoy it!
