I’ve always thought of mustard as a bit of a magical ingredient. Just a small amount turns an ordinary food into something extra special, whether I’m adding classic Heinz Yellow Mustard to a hot dog or putting a half-teaspoon of mustard powder into my egg salad sandwich filling.
But my favourite variety of mustard, both as a cooking ingredient and a condiment, is Dijon mustard. And new Heinz Dijon Mustard delivers delicious Dijon flavour in a convenient squeeze bottle that’s perfect for summer cooking.
Since our newest addition, Baby Cormac, joined the family five days ago, I don’t have the time or the energy to cook up anything too elaborate at the moment. But the great thing about Heinz Dijon Mustard is that it adds gourmet flavour to food without a lot of work! And my version of this simple Maple Dijon Glazed Salmon is the perfect example of that!
- 4 skinless salmon fillets
- 4 tbsp. maple syrup
- 2 tbsp. Heinz Dijon Mustard
- Mix syrup and mustard in small bowl and set aside.
- Heat barbecue to medium-high heat. Grease a sheet of foil and place on barbecue.
- Place fish on foil and brush with glaze.
- Grill 4 min. on each side or until fish flakes easily with fork, brushing frequently with glaze mixture.
- Serve immediately.
The glaze for this Maple Dijon Salmon can easily be made in larger or smaller quantities as desired depending on the amount of salmon needed. Just stick to the ratio of one part mustard to two parts maple syrup and mix well. And for an extra special flavour, try grilling the salmon on a cedar plank!
On the hunt for other great recipes using new Heinz Dijon Mustard? Kraft Canada has what you’re looking for! Personally, I can’t wait to try the Chicken Cordon Bleu. I’ve always loved adding a touch of Dijon to chicken, and this recipe sounds like a great way of doing that!
The rich, spicy flavour of this creamy mustard makes it a perfect choice for everything from sauces to salad dressings, and I can’t wait to experiment with it even more in some of my other favourite recipes. Give it a try in a simple glaze like this one or on your favourite sandwich or burger and see what you think!
