Salmon is one of the tastiest fish, and it is healthy too! One of the great things about salmon is that it is so quick and easy to prepare, which makes it perfect for busy days. This recipe for Pan Seared Salmon with Mustard Sauce is ready in less than 15 minutes from start to finish.
It is made by simply searing the salmon in a frying pan while making a simple sauce using Dijon Mustard and Maple Syrup. The flavors blend together perfectly with the mild flavor of the salmon. I used wild caught salmon, because I love the more delicate flavor compared to farm raised salmon. But wild caught is quite a bit more expensive, and I am sure it would taste great with farm raised salmon. Adding a salad makes this a fast and tasty complete meal!
- 1 1/2 lbs wild caught salmon
