Smokey Honey Mustard Salmon

Urban Recipes

By Christina Jeffrey

So if you haven't guessed it salmon is one of my favourite fish to eat.

This Smokey Honey Mustard Salmon with garlic, lemon and wine is a beautiful combination of flavours. 

Salmon is so versatile and rich in vitamins and minerals. A fantastic high quality healthy protein that can be very weight loss friendly and even improve your memory. There are many health benefits, but I love eating it regardless. This meal is beautiful for any night of the week, but is also fantastic to prepare for entertaining.
