041315 019So this happened this past weekend, this great girl and her momma completed their first 5k run. It was an awesome event, we had a great time and it was for a great cause.  The run benefited a great man that was a huge part of our community.

So in keeping with healthy, this salmon dish is healthy quick meal that’s perfect for a weeknight dinner or when you have company over and want to impress. Add a side of rice and a salad and dinner is served!

and in no time you have dinner.  I was hoping for more grill marks, but I’m working with a new grill and I’m still learning it, but grilling it makes a different taste, smokey and juicy.  You could bake it in the oven on a sheet pan for about 15 minutes, but if you can use your grill, take it outside!

Ingredients :

4 salmon fillets

2 TBSP Dijon mustard

2 TBSP Honey

1 lemon juiced

Combine mustard, honey and lemon juice in a bowl, and heat your grill to medium. Put salmon fillets on the grill and brush on mustard sauce and grill of 3 minutes turn and baste other side for 3 minutes.  Before removing from the grill I turned one last time and basted the other side one more time.  Remove and serve.  I served mine with a salad, and made a dressing of Dijon mustard, honey, a splash of vinegar and a couple tablespoons of olive oil to go along with the salmon favors.  I had some leftover for a great lunch the next day.
