Honey & Mustard Salmon

Super simple salmon

I’m short on time today so recipes like Honey and Mustard Salmon from Two Chubby Cubs are perfect when you need to rustle up a meal in minutes with a handful of ingredients. Grab some salmon fillets, coat them in a wholegrain mustard and honey marinade and bang them in the oven. Serve with some greens and/or a small portion of new potatoes or wedges. Job done.

For other fast salmon marinades, have a gander at pan-fried firecracker salmon, salmon and broccoli tray bake, sticky mango roasted salmon or tandoori salmon with mango salsa.
