This is one of Matthew's favourite supper dishes. I got the original recipe from a BC government publication on fish. As usual, I have changed the recipe over the years, and added a few extra things to it.
What you need: 1/4 cup butter or margarine; 1 pound of salmon fillets or steaks; 2 Tbs honey, 1 Tbs dijon mustard; salt and pepper to taste; 1 Tbs fresh minced onion; 1 large clove fresh minced garlic, 1/4 tsp cardamom; 1 tsp dried tarragon flakes.
Preheat the oven to 450*F
What you do: melt the butter and place into the baking dish. In a small bowl mix honey and mustard. Add all the seasonings, and stir well. Place all the fish into the baking dish and spread the seasoning mix evenly over all the pieces. Cover the dish with foil.
Bake for 10 - 20 minutes, or until the fish is just cooked through. Make sure to NOT overcook.
Goes great with a rice or noodle side, or wild and white rice blend, and steamed vegetable.
