This Honey Dijon Salmon has become a number one meal in our house. This is the only way we eat salmon. Especially if you have a picky eater in your house (ehem… there is something you should know about Eddie… he hates fish, and the fishy flavor. The honey dijon sauce completely masks the “fishy” taste and he loves it!)

It is ready in 30 minutes, super healthy, and melts in your mouth.
