Gourmet Monday

It is almost fishing time" can't wait". Hubby and I love to fish we could afford to buy a boat but we can not justify the coast with the amount of time you can use it here is Utah. So we have float tubes. I know what you are saying you would love to see a 50 something year old woman in a float tube.(HAHA) I can not tell you how much I enjoy this, if you happen to get a fish on you know right away. They can't give you a ride around the lake if you let them. Sorry I am getting a little carried away. We have been talking about going to Alaska on a fishing trip, along with going to Greece and Germany. We just can't seem to make up our minds where we are going. Since we have had time on our side we haven't gone any where. I just keep getting carried away back to food. Salmon is one of our favorite fish to eat. We bought a whole salmon with the intention of using ever square inch. They are not the cheapest to buy whole, but the recipes I am going to share make it worth it. Watch later in the week for more fun salmon recipes.
Sweet and Honey Hot Mustard Glaze Roasted Salmon

4 lbs salmon fillet
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Canadian Steak Seasoning
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
1/2 cup honey
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon hot mustard powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons fresh dill

Preheat the oven to 400 F
Coat a shallow baking dish with cooking spray. Season both sides of salmon with salt and pepper and steak seasoning. Place salmon in prepared baking dish.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the mustard, honey, lemon juice, mustard powder, and garlic powder. Remove 1/2 cup of the mustard sauce and set aside. Pour the remaining sauce over the salmon fillets in the pan. Roast the salmon, uncovered, until fork tender, about 30 minutes.

Yum! I have had mustard on my mind of late too...hubby and I fish every year, he just announced that we cannot go fish for trout as they just stocked the lakes and you have to wait until April, why who knows, guess they want to give them time to grow up, lol
