Mustard Spiced Salmon - Home & Family

Directions for Salmon

1) Preheat your oven broiler

2) Combine first 6 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring well with a fork or whisk and then rub mustard mixture evenly over each fillet (not skin side). Use paper towel to wipe any moisture off skin of fish to get the best crispy skin. Add filets to pan that has been prepared with cooking spray skin side down.

3) Broil 8 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness. Note this sauce is amazing and you may want to double the recipe for the sauce to really amp up the flavor!

Directions for Green Beans

In a large bowl add the green beans, onions and chilis and 1 tbs oil and all the spices. Toss together until all green beans are coated. Next, heat a non-stick sauté pan on high heat (important to make sure pan is nice and hot before adding cooking spray and green beans to get the charring without overcooking). Remove pan when hot, spray with nonstick spray and add the green bean mix. Spread evenly around the pan. Cook for 1 minute then toss or stir in pan. And continue to do so for 5 minutes, stirring or tossing every minute. Now add the garlic, cook for another minute and remove from heat (add garlic at the end so it doesn’t burn) and add the lemon juice and zest if using the zest. (I don’t always add lemon as I’m not a huge fan but the acid does bring out the flavor of the spices)
