Sweet & Spicy Dijon-Encrusted Salmon

I made this almost a month ago, but there were too many backdated entries to add it in, so here it is now!

I am the first to admit that my original reasoning behind getting an instagram account was solely so I could look at the food porn/stockpile even more recipes. I found Fresh Fit N Healthy because of this, and later found out that she is a fellow Recipe ReDux-er (if that’s a word)! It’s on my list of goals to try out other Recipe Re-Dux-er’s recipes, so here’s the first one I attempted! (It was part of the mother’s day dinner!)

We were super hungry, so I put less effort into making it pretty. We also grilled it instead of baking it, but I think it turned out really well! :] Super tasty and a very interesting blend of flavors.

I’m joining in on the Wine’d Down Wednesday linkup/blog hop! I don’t actually drink wine (I’m missing my acetaldehyde dehydrogenase enzyme!), but it’s pretty much a way to link up a recent post and virtually mingle with other bloggers since we can’t really meet up in person, so here we are!
