Salmon with Savoury Mustard Sauce

Yields6 Servings

Our Salmon with Savoury Mustard Sauce includes those heart healthy omega-3s and gets its flavour from pepper, shallots, dill, whole grain or Dijon mustard, lemon juice and zest, as well as vinegar; so you can hold back on the salt if you need to, because there’s a lot of flavour already there! Serve with some whole grains and leafy greens and you’re off to a great heart healthy and balanced start. Steelhead trout lovers can substitute the salmon with trout.
