Quick and Easy: Honey Dijon Salmon

075Dinner win.

So I’m sure people will roll their eyes at the “Quick & Easy” title, but seriously this couldn’t have been easier to make last night, for my sister and I.

I picked up two portions of salmon from the Fresh Market, along with some cauliflower and garlic.  The rest of the ingredients were pulled from the pantry (although they’re all easy to get if you have no reserves).

Here’s the meal from start to finish:

Put a pot of water to boil while you put away some other groceries. Chop some cauliflower, and put the salmon on a tin foil covered toaster oven sized pan.

064Mix 1 part dijon mustard to 1 part honey. Slather that stuff on your salmon.  Put the pan in the toaster over (or regular oven) on broil for 10 minutes.

While that’s broiling, put the cauliflower in the boiling water.  I know most sites or recipes say to steam; is anyone really doing this? Is there a difference?


Once the cauliflower is fork tender, scoop it out and put it in the blender with some Laughing Cow cheese, a bit of cream cheese maybe, salt, pepper, garlic.  Then stare at it while it does nothing and your sister tells you to add milk. Then puree until it has the consistency of mashed potatoes sort of.

With that ready, the salmon almost ready, I heated some olive oil in a pan.  Added frozen string beans and some minced garlic on high heat.  Saute until done and then plate everything up with some extra cheese.  Always remember the extra cheese.
