How To Make Slow Roasted Salmon With Sweet Mustard Sauce


* 2 salmon fillets , approx 150g
* 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
* some salt and pepper
* assorted fresh herbs , for garnish
* for the sauce:
* 2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
* 1 Tbsp whole grain mustard
* 4 Tbsp honey
* 1 Tbsp soy sauce
* 1 tsp black pepper
* 1 Tbsp olive oil
* 1 frying pan
* 1 set of tongs
* 1 bowl
* 1 spoon
* 1 whisk
* 1 metal spatula


Step 2:

Preheat the oven

Set the oven to 150°C (300ºF/ gas mark 2).

Step 3:

Make the sauce

Spoon the Dijon mustard into a bowl. Add the whole grain mustard, honey, soy sauce, black pepper and the olive oil. Mix it all together well with a whisk and set it aside.

Step 4:

Sear the salmon

Season the salmon with salt and with pepper on both sides.
Heat the frying pan over a medium high heat and add a little oil. Place the fillets into the frying pan, flesh side down. Sear them on one side for about a minute. Flip them over to the other side with your spatula, skin side down in preparation for roasting in the oven.

Step 5:

Roast the salmon

Place the frying pan into the centre of the preheated oven. Remove the fillets when they have turned a pinkish colour. Use your finger as a test to see if they are done. They need to be firm to the touch, but still soft and springy on the inside. Let them rest for another minute in the pan before serving.

Step 6:

Garnish and serve

Serve both fillets onto a plate. Drizzle some of the mustard sauce over it. Garnish with a generous heap of herbs and serve. This recipe goes equally well with rice, potatoes, or pasta salad.
