Like many of you out there, you suddenly realize that you need to get dinner ready in about 20 minutes or you will have wolves gnawing on your legs.  I totally understand and let me tell you, this is one dish you can make faster than going to the local store and begging them to fill some containers with misc. items that will cost you $40.

Now, I had shopped Sunday and already had the Salmon thawed so I literally, turned on the oven, removed the fish from the bag, placed it in a dish and stared at it for a few seconds. I mean dang, a girl needs to do more than squeeze lemon on it once in a while right? Right! So I grabbed a clove of garlic, some herbs and a whole grain mustard. Oh, while the salmon is in the oven, you can steam some frozen veggies or toss a salad together or go relax for a few minutes. Your call. 

Come on now people, just because you do not have fresh herbs is no reason to click off this page. I bet you have some dried ones that need some love. So, while that oven is heating up to 375, do this:

1 pound-ish Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon
2 tablespoons of mustard
1 teaspoon fresh or 1.5 teaspoon dried parsley, dill, tarragon (or whatever you prefer on seafood)
1 clove of garlic, minced

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Simply mix 2 tablespoons of mustard with a herbs and garlic and spread it on the fish. Bake for 15 minutes or so depending in the thickness of the fish.

I know, I hear you: you are demanding some Salmon cakes. I have a few salmon cake recipes to share including Salmon Cakes & Cauliflower Puree or go for the Salmon Cakes Two Ways with Mashed Potatoes or Chips

There are so many different mustards that could be used for this dish, such as whole grain, Dijon, champagne, Creole, and the combinations with the fresh herbs is endless. Dill and tarragon are two that do well with oily fish such as salmon.

Bon appetit!
