Honey Mustard Glazed Salmon

January 8, 2013

Honey mustard glazed salmon is a healthy meal option for people who are counting calories.  Salmon is an excellent source of protein and high in vitamin D and omega 3 fatty acids.  Fish cooks rather quickly so you can have dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes.  Pair this glazed salmon with cumin scented quinoa and steamed green beans.
