Pan Seared Salmon with Mustard Dill Sauce

This recipe is from my new favorite Website “World’s Healthiest Foods” that has lots of quick and easy recipes. If you notice the difference between their picture and mine – the sauce in mine is much thicker. I’m not sure why – perhaps the mustard I used (fabulous Inglehoffer Stone Ground Mustard) or perhaps it’s because my pan was a bit too hot and the second I poured in the broth, it mostly boiled away. I’m sure you can use a little more broth and make it more runny, but I made the entire amount of sauce (for 4 filet’s) and put it on one because I love me some sauce!!

This is so easy and it tastes amazing! Be sure to get fresh wild-caught salmon (I got mine at Whole Foods – they even de-bone it for you!).

Servings: 1
Prep and Cook Time: 15 minutes

1 salmon filet (about 1/3-1/2 lb) skin and bones removed
2 medium garlic cloves, pressed
1 TBS Inglehoffer Stone Ground Mustard
1 fresh lemon, cut in half
¼ cup organic vegetable broth
1 tsp Suzanne’s Just Like Honey Rice Nectar (or honey)
1 tsp chopped fresh dill
salt and white pepper to taste

1. Prepare all the ingredients and have them ready. You’re going to be throwing stuff in the pan at an alarming rate!
2. Preheat a skillet on medium high heat for about 2 minutes. Rub salmon with 1/2 of cut lemon and season with a little salt and white pepper. When pan has gotten hot place salmon in the hot pan, and cook for about 2-3 minutes. (You do not need oil or liquid for this) Turn and cook for another 2-3 minutes on the other side. Remove salmon from pan, and place on a plate.
3. Wipe hot pan quickly with a paper towel and return to burner. This removes excess oil and burnt particles from the pan while retaining the flavor left in the pan to enhance your sauce.
4. Add garlic and stir for half a minute to cook it. Add mustard, and whisk in juice from other half of lemon, vegetable broth, Just Like Honey Rice Nectar, salt, and pepper. Cook on high heat for a minute to reduce slightly and add dill. Pour over salmon and serve.
