Recipe for Honey-Mustard Glazed Salmon

Honey-Mustard Glazed Salmon with infused rice & green beans

Ingredients:

  • 450g jumbo salmon filet
  • ¾ cup basmati rice
  • 2 tbsp whole-grain mustard
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp vegetable stock powder
  • 170g green beans, trimmed
  • 1 lemon
  • 28g almonds, sliced
  • 28g dried cranberries

Directions:

1. To a medium pot, add rice, vegetable stock powder and 1 1/3 cups water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook for 12-15 min, until rice is tender and water is absorbed. Remove the pot from heat. Stir in dried cranberries and 1 tbsp butter. Set aside for 5 min, off heat and still covered.

2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine honey and mustard. Pat salmon dry with paper towels. Transfer salmon to a foil-lined baking sheet. Season generously with salt and pepper. Brush honey-mustard evenly over tops of salmon. Roast in the top of the oven for 16-20 min, until cooked through.

3. Meanwhile, trim green beans. Zest, then juice half the lemon. Cut remaining lemon into wedges. Heat a dry, large non-stick pan over medium heat. When the pan is hot, add almonds. Toast for 2-3 min, stirring often, until golden-brown. (TIP: Keep your eye on them so they don’t burn!) Transfer almonds to a plate.

4. To the same pan, off heat, add green beans, 2 tbsp water and 2 tbsp butter. Return to medium heat. Cover and cook for 4-6 min, swirling pan occasionally, until tender-crisp. Season with salt and pepper.

5. To the rice, stir in lemon juice and lemon zest. Divide infused rice, glazed salmon and green between plates. Sprinkle almonds over green beans. Squeeze a lemon wedge over top, to taste.
