I love salmon. It can be pricey around here so we don’t have it that often and I always forget how easy it can be to cook and how much I enjoy it.
Growing up my mom and dad used to always prepare it stuffed full of dill, onions, fresh herbs and a good squirt of lemon juice. I like it this way, but one time when I did not have fresh herbs on hand I stumbled upon an even tastier way I now use to prepare mine.
- Salmon, filet or steak (we usually buy the boneless, skinless pieces from Costco)
- Dijon mustard (we like the Maille brand)
- Clubhouse la Grille Salmon seasoning
- Cedar Plank, soaked (optional)
- Using a spoon or dull knife, spread the Dijon liberally across the surface of the salmon. I prefer the grainy style Dijon, but smooth is what we had on hand this time and it works equally well.
- Put a generous sprinkling of Clubhouse la Grille Salmon flavour seasoning over the mustard.
- Grill or bake your salmon until cooked through and flaky. For an extra layer of flavour we always grill ours on a soaked cedar plank. It smells delicious as it cooks, and it keeps the salmon nice and moist.
My husband is not a huge fan of fish, but he really enjoys this recipe and surprisingly the kids both gobble down everything on their plates when we have it.
If you are not a fan of Dijon mustard, don’t fret. Once cooked, I have a hard time really tasting the mustard on the fish. It imparts a delicious vinegar zip and combines perfectly with the spice mix to enhance the fish and give it a wonderful burst of flavour.
If you are watching your salt intake, I noticed on the Clubhouse website that there is a no-salt added version of the Salmon seasoning mix available along with all their other great flavour options in the spice aisle.
