Mustard Glazed Roast Salmon
This mustard glazed salmon is simple, delicious and quintessentially Northwest. The sweet mustard glaze gives the salmon additional flavor and the grains of mustard add texture and crunch. A wonderful perk is that this takes almost no prep and just a few minutes of hands off cooking- nothing could be better for a weeknight or a dinner party!
I loved this served on a bed of cool crunchy raw cucumbers. They were a cool and refreshing contrast to the mustard glazed salmon, and were a beautiful color backdrop.
