Broiled Salmon with Mustard Sauce

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


Broiled Salmon with Mustard Sauce
White fish such as tilapia, snapper or halibut can be substituted for salmon in this tangy, French-inspired recipe for broiled salmon with mustard sauce. Dijon mustard mixes with fresh herbs to create a zesty topping for seafood, tofu, or poultry. Serve this dish with greens, sweet potatoes and roasted veggies for a lovely dinner.

I have decided to go macrobiotic.. I have been a vegetarian for the last 4 months and decided to take the leap to macrobiotics... I have to say I was apprehensive because it's a major change. It was much easier than I thought. I can't wait to try it on my family and friends.. Semaj411
