What’s for Dinner? Banana Salmon

It sounds like an odd combination, but it’s really quite delicious. This is a recipe my mother used to prepare, that was passed on from her mother. It’s not something I prepare often (DH isn’t a fan of fish unless he caught it himself), and this was the first time introducing to the kiddos! It’s very easy to make and goes well with just about any green veggie. I served with broccoli and brown rice, but steam asparagus or sauteed garlic spinach would be delicious, too. They seemed to enjoy it, so I’ll keep it in the rotation for the next time hubby is out of town! 😉

Salmon with Bananas & Mustard Sauce

3-4 salmon filets (I used frozen this time, but fresh is always better)

Mustard Sauce
1/2 cup Duke’s mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
2 T stoneground mustard (I used the Trader’s Joe brand)

  • Distribute salmon filets on baking pan lined with parchment paper
  • Dot salmon liberally with ripe banana slices 
  • “Ice” with mustard sauce 
  • Bake at 425 for 15 minutes

See that caramelization on top? The sugar in the bananas blends with the mustard sauce for a delicious creamy-sweet combo that really compliments the flavor of the salmon!
