Maple Dijon Salmon Fillets
Real maple syrup pairs with a rustic stone-ground dijon making pan-seared salmon filets extra special!
large skillet with a lid
real maple syrup
stone-ground Dijon mustard
Melt the ghee in a large skillet on medium heat.
Add the salmon fillets to the skillet skin side down and cover the skillet with the lid.
Sear fillets for about 8 minutes on the skin side.
Then using tongs, flip the fillets over and sear for about 5 minutes.
While the fillets are searing, whisk together the maple syrup and stone-ground Dijon mustard.
Turn the fillets back over to the skin side and use a fork to test for doneness. (Fish is done when the fillet flakes easily when pulled with a fork).
If the fillets are done, pour the maple syrup/Dijon mixture all over them coating them well.
Heat through and spoon the glaze from the bottom of the pan onto the fillets and serve.
This recipe makes 6 servings. In the video, you see me making 4 fillets. That's because there were only 3 of us home for dinner the day I made this recipe. I saved 2 fillets and the rest of the glaze to prepare for lunch the next day.
