Opting for Wild Ethically Sourced Salmon

Nutritional Superiority: Wild salmon tends to have a higher nutritional profile, including more omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for heart health and brain function.

Environmental Sustainability: Wild salmon fishing practices often adhere to stricter environmental standards, helping to maintain healthy fish populations and preserve marine ecosystems.

Ethical Considerations: Choosing ethically sourced salmon supports responsible fishing practices that prioritize animal welfare and respect for natural habitats.

Reduced Chemical Exposure: Wild salmon is less likely to be exposed to antibiotics, hormones, and other chemicals commonly used in farmed fish production.

Superior Flavor and Texture: Many people prefer the taste and texture of wild salmon, which is often firmer and has a richer flavor compared to farmed varieties.

Supporting Local Communities: Purchasing wild salmon from sustainable fisheries can help support local fishing communities and economies.

Honey Mustard Marinade Sauce

The gluten-free honey mustard sauce in this recipe is like a ray of sunlight. Its perfect blend of sweet caramelized honey and tangy Dijon mustard elevates the salmon to new heights of flavour.

The sweetness of the honey, caramelizes during baking, creating a rich and indulgent glaze, while, the Dijon mustard adds a savory tanginess, offering depth, and complexity to every bite.

I highly suggest that doubling the honey mustard sauce is always an option for those craving an extra punch of flavour, or for those who love a dipping sauce, allowing you to slather it on generously for an even more indulgent dinner.

Vegetables: Incorporating additional vegetables such as sweet potatoes or carrots into this tray bake. Ensure they're diced to a uniform size for consistent baking and optimal texture.

Salmon: For a twist, experiment with substitutes such as trout or a hearty, dense white fish. These alternatives offer unique flavour profiles that beautifully complement the honey mustard sauce and roasted vegetables.


Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days, the next day making sure it is heated through well before eating.
