What better way to increase your
Omega 3 intake than by covering salmon
with brown sugar?
I didn't have any honey so I used a little bit of apricot Simply Fruit. I also added a bit more Dijon mustard and also included 2 cloves of diced garlic and about 1/2 teaspoon of fresh ground ginger. Since it was pretty sweet I also added some lemon juice. I salted and peppered the salmon pieces by themselves. The sauce made enough for 6 pieces of salmon but next time I will make a bit more because it is yummy. I also will eliminate the butter because it didn't seem to make a difference. I did spray the foil paper with spray and patted the salmon pieces dry before putting them on the foil. Next time I will only make 4 pieces because the kids split a piece while Sean and I each had one.
Even though we all liked this (very proud of the girls for trying something totally new) next time I will do a more savory and healthier version. I will probably just go with fresh herbs and lemon. I did like how quickly and easy it was to cook. I was very apprehensive that it would stick or not cook throughly.
I served the salmon with one of my favorite potato recipes from Better Homes & Gardens, http://www.bhg.com/recipe/vegetables/cottage-fried-potatoes/. I've made these potatoes many times over the years and they are just hearty and homey. We had a simple green salad along with it.
