Salmon with Honey Mustard Pan Sauce

We love the salmon at Trader Joe’s and it’s even better that there are recipes like this one on the back.

2 T olive oil
2 T butter
2 T whole grain Dijon mustard
Black pepper, to taste
1 lb salmon, defrosted
1 T honey
1/8 c water

Add olive oil and butter to 12 inch skillet and cook over medium heat to melt better.

Add mustard, stir to combine and cook for 1-2 minutes to toast mustard seeds.

Add fish to pan, sprinkle with pepper and saute until lightly browned, about three minutes per side.

Turn fish, mix in honey and cover with lid to complete cooking.

Remove fish, add water to deglaze pan and heat over high to reduce the sauce by about half.

Pour sauce over fish and serve.

We had this with a salad and bread and butter.

What did the family think? We liked this fish, but I had some trouble with the sauce. I think I had the burners on too high and the mustard seeds got too burnt. So, we had no sauce. I liked it without the sauce. My hubby made his own sauce of equal parts mayo and Dijon mustard.
