Soooo, I know I make a whole lot of salmon recipes on here and y’all are probably like, seriously? Does she eat any seafood besides salmon? And the answer is…not usually. I mean, sometimes we’ll get scallops or a mild tasting white fish, but we generally always have some salmon in our freezer, so it’s easy to just pull it out and use it whenever we need it…aka when my menu planning has failed and I realize that I didn’t actually plan dinner for that night…oops. Leading me to the other awesome thing about salmon- it defrosts super quickly too! Haha. But seriously, this was one of those dinners that was not at all planned and just kinda thrown together last minute, but it still turned out so yummy!
In the past I’ve made salmon with a walnut topping as well as salmon with a honey mustard sauce, and those were both awesome, so I figured why not combine them and give us some toasted walnuts andddd honey mustard?! My logic, friends, is clearly spot on. And even though I threw this together last minute, it is most definitely a dinner that I will make again soon because it’s so delicious & filling!
Of course it had to be 21 Day Fix friendly to exist in my kitchen, right? The salmon is a red container, then the walnuts count as your blue container and the honey mustard sauce counts as the orange container! So simple.
And I served mine with steamed broccoli (green container) and mashed sweet potato (yellow container). Simple? You bet. Boring? NO WAY!
