I love Salmon & Mustard — so Mustard Crusted Salmon seems like a perfect idea!


The tangy taste of mustard mixed with the silky texture of salmon, and all the great fish oil which is so good for my body inside and out.  Not only is fish healthy for us, the American Heart Association recommends that we eat fish two time a week  — it’s very quick to cook and ideal for a busy schedule.


Super Simple — Mustard Crusted Salmon


  • Preheat your oven to 400•


  • 4-6 oz filets of — wild caught salmon


  • grainy mustard


  • a little EVOO


  • salt & pepper to taste


Mix the mustard, EVOO, s/p — season your salmon and place in an oven proof pan skin side down, coat with the mustard on the other side and roast for approximately 5 minutes.


Preheat the broiler — place your fish 6″ away from the heat, broil for 3-4 minutes until the mustard is crusty and the salmon is cooked through.  Enjoy!!



Wild Caught Salmon, please!


The federal Food and Drug Administration is on track to approve AquaBounty AquaAdvantave transgentic salmon as the first genetically engineered animal intended for us to eat. This new hybrid salmon will combine DNA from Atlantic salmon, Chinook salmon and the eel-like ocean pout. These genetically engineered salmon will produce enough growth hormones year-round to make the fish grow at twice their natural rate.

I personally believe that we have enough issues with our food supply that we need to vote with our dollars and buy the best product that we can possibly afford.  The quality of food you put into your body now will reflect in your health later.  So, eat less — which is what we are doing anyway, right? And, make the quality better to off-set the price.
