Asian Honey Mustard Salmon on Spinach and Mushrooms


6 to 8 oz salmon cut into two fillets

salt and pepper

5 tablespoons creole mustard

2 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons soy

1 white onion sliced

3 tablespoons sesame oil

1 package clean sliced mushrooms

1 head garlic minced

1 bag of pre-washed baby spinach (or boc choy, which is a nice substitute)

1 tablespoon salt and pepper

1 tablespoon ginger

2 tablespoons soy


For the salmon, pat dry and massage in salt and pepper. In a small mixing bowl, combine creole mustard, honey, and soy. Place in a bag with salmon and marinate for half an hour.

Cook on 450 degrees 20 to 30 minutes in a baking pan coated with a little olive oil. Make sure the salmon is well coated with the marinade.

In a large saucepan, saute sliced white onion in sesame oil. Then, add and saute mushrooms, garlic, and spinach, with salt, pepper, ginger, and soy. Cover and cook until the spinach has cooked down.

Serve salmon on top of spinach. Enjoy!
