Napa Valley Glazed Salmon
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine the honey, thyme, mustard, lemon zest, and pepper in a small bowl. Arrange the salmon, with the skin side down, in a shallow roasting pan lined with cooking foil. Using the back of a spoon, spread the honey mixture to coat the top of each fillet.
  3. Bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees and flesh is opaque and flakes with a fork.
Recipe Notes

Variation: Substitute your favorite dried or fresh herb for the thyme-or combine several.

Tip: To store fresh fish a day or two after purchase, rinse and place in a bag with ice. Pour off melted ice and replaced with more ice chunks.

Nutrition Note: The white droplets accumulating on the top of salmon are rich in omega-3s, and so is the gray colored meat right next to the skin. Enjoy both to reap the most omega-3s.
