We eat a lot of salmon in this house. And since our trip to Alaska this past summer, we’re eating even more. Mr. NoPot and our son went on a salmon fishing trip and the fish they caught was flash frozen and shipped back home. I’ve got a freezer full of salmon, so we’re eating it about once a week. In the summer I usually grill it, but once the weather changes, I have to find other alternatives. Parchment paper packets is a fantastic way to cook fish. It keeps all the moisture in, cooks it evenly, and creates no mess! You’re going to love the simplicity of this and be amazed by the flavor.
Salmon with Mustard Sauce
4 individual salmon filets (5-6 oz) or one family size (1 lb to 1 1/4 lbs)
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
2 tbsp brown sugar
salt and pepper
Mix the lemon juice, mustard, and brown sugar in a small bowl. Place the salmon in the center of the parchment paper. Spoon sauce over salmon. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Seal the packet(s). Bake at 400 degrees. If you’re making one family size filet, bake for 30 minutes. If you’re making 4 individual pieces, bake for 15 minutes.
