I don’t have a lot of tricks up my sleeve when it comes to salmon. I used to work for a caterer and they would always serve poached salmon with a cold mayo/garlic/dill sauce and I always loved that. Besides that, I usually just use a honey/soy sauce based marinade and call it good. Those two things worked for quite awhile but I was ready for something a little different last time salmon was on the menu. I did some recipe research and saw mustard paired with salmon over and over again. Taking that into consideration, I combined an old favorite and added a new twist. Creamy mayonaise, good dijon mustard, minced garlic and fresh dill make the perfect easy topping for baked salmon. Try this soon!
