One of the quickest, easiest go-to dinners for us on a busy evening, is salmon. It takes seconds to brush a thick piece down with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and pop it under the broiler on low, for about 5 minutes or so. The outside edges get a touch of that crispy bit that we love, while the inside is oh-so-tender. Try the quick sauce recipe below, adapted from Every Day with Rachel Ray, to liven up your taste buds. (Rachel’s recipe suggests using hardboiled eggs through a sieve but I am so not a fan of this). Throw it all on top of a bed of sautéed spinach to make the meal even healthier and a touch more delicious.
Creamy Mustard Sauce
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 3 Tablespoons white wine vinegar (we use Sweet Petite by Virginia Vinegar Works)
- 2 teaspoons spicy mustard (we use Jack Daniels Old No. 7)
- 1 Tablespoon parsley, chopped
- 1 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg
How to Make It!
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together until a sauce is formed. Serve over salmon.
