This spicy subtly sweet smear makes a terrific easy sauce for salmon, served with a side of steamed vegetables it’s a flavorful easy meal. Atlantic salmon with a higher fat content works best for broiling however a leaner salmon will also work with reduced broiling time.
Many ovens require only a five minute pre-heat when using the Broil Mode and remember to always broil with the oven door closed.
1 - filet of salmon with or without skin
¼ - cup Whole Grain Dijon mustard
¼ - cup honey
2 - tablespoons creamed horseradish
Combine the mustard, honey and horseradish together and chill for a few minutes to make it easier to spread without sliding off the fish.
Place the oven rack on the 2nd rack from the top and preheat the oven in the Convection Broil Mode to High or 480 degrees. If your oven has a gas broiler you will only have a Broil option with no temperature setting.
Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil, shiny side down.
Place the salmon on the pan and spread the smear evenly over the salmon.
Broil for 6 - 8 minutes until the glaze begins to change color.
If the salmon fillet is quite thick then move the tray to a lower rack away from the intense heat in the top of the oven and leave it in the oven for another few minutes till firm to the touch in the thickest part.
