Coconut Honey Mustard Salmon

Sharing content is one of the best ways to support this blog!


I am the first to say that I am a more creative baker than a cook.  I don’t understand a lot of cooking “principles”.  I just make shit up as I go.  I often make honey mustard salmon, and one night I thought “why not throw some coconut butter on that baby, too?”  So I did.


And it was super yummy, and I think everyone should try it.  Best part is that this recipe is super quick if you have thawed salmon.  Because all you’ve got to do is pan-fry it and then drizzle honey mustard and coconut butter over it (as you can see in the pics, I like a LOT of both).

Super simple, super quick, super good.  What more do you want?!  Just make it.
