Chefs, there’s honey mustard, and then there’s the gourmet honey-mustard sauce we’re making for our seared salmon. We’re combining honey and Dijon mustard with parsley, red wine vinegar-marinated shallot and olive oil. Then we’re spooning the flavorful sauce over flaky, pan-seared fillets, coated in warming spices. Sweet and tart, the well-balanced sauce makes for the perfect condiment. A salad of roasted broccoli and warm farro rounds out this wholesome meal.
