The Romancing The Bee Diet – Day 8 – Honey Raspberry Glazed Salmon

Salmon

When I’m watching what I eat, I don’t want to be cooking all the time.  It’s easier for me to avoid temptation than to resist it!

So I like to make a lot of something and serve it in different ways over a day or two.  After dinner tonight, this salmon will reappear as a salad tomorrow.

Yield: 4 to 6 servings

Ingredients:

1 whole side of salmon, or 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets

1 tablespoon fine sea salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/4 teaspoon dry mustard

3 tablespoons honey

1 1/2 tablespoon raspberry balsamic vinegar

Extra virgin olive oil, for brushing salmon

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

If using a side of salmon, cut about halfway through the flesh about every 2 to 3 inches so there are some spaces for the glaze to sink in. If using salmon fillets, slice about 8 to 10 sliced angles into flesh, to help flesh more completely soak in the glaze.

In a small bowl or cup, mix the salt, pepper, and dry mustard.

In a medium glass bowl, heat the honey in the microwave for 30 seconds to liquefy further. Remove from the microwave and mix in raspberry balsamic vinegar.

Brush the both sides of the salmon with olive oil. Season the flesh side with the spice mixture. Brush the flesh generously with the honey-balsamic mixture.

Bake or broil the salmon for 10-15 minutes or until done to taste. Served with roasted brussels sprouts with pine nuts.

    This sounds so good! I love salmon – I currently have a huge filet (to share between two people!) in my freezer, so I might try this recipe out instead of steaming it like I always do with lemon & garlic. Thanks for sharing! =)
