Salmon and homemade honey mustard are a delicious combo. Paired with red potatoes, this dish is a real winner! Fish is a great source of protein and also provides omega-3 fatty acids. The American Heart Association recommends eating fish 1-2 times per week. I love to purchase frozen fish to ensure its freshness. Let’s get started with this easy and delicious meal!

1

For the sauce, mix together dijon mustard, lemon juice, garlic powder and honey.

2

Slice small red potatoes about ¼ of an inch thick. I love using red potatoes, they add color and the skin gets crisp in the oven!

3

Next, spoon and spread ⅓ of the sauce onto each piece of salmon.

4

Toss the potato slices in the remaining honey mustard sauce.

5

Place salmon on one side of the baking sheet and spread potatoes over the rest of the sheet, in a single layer.

6

Yum! Pair honey mustard salmon and potatoes with a delicious side salad or a non-starchy vegetable, like broccoli, zucchini or carrots.
