Baked Salmon with Caramelized Onions and Mustard and Roasted Brussels Sprouts Baked Salmon with Caramelized Onions and Mustard and Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Ingredients
2 6oz fillets salmon (wild caught)
2 cups Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/2 tbsp stone ground mustard
1/4 tsp raw, local honey
1/2 medium onion, sliced
1-2 tbsp ghee

Directions
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Toss the Brussels with 1 tbsp of melted ghee and place in a glass baking dish. Place in the oven for 40 to 45 minutes, until tender. Season salmon with salt. Put a small amount of melted ghee on a baking sheet or in an oven proof dish. Place salmon, skin side down, in the dish. In a separate small bowl combine mustard and honey. Use a knife or spatula to spread mustard and honey mixture, covering the filet completely (more mustard makes more flavor). Sprinkle 1 clove of finely chopped garlic over the mustard sauce. Let sit. In a saute’ pan, add a small amount of olive oil and saute’ the sliced onion on medium-high heat until soft and caramelized (about 5 minutes). Spoon caramelized onion on top of uncooked salmon filet and put the dish in the oven. Bake until salmon is cooked through. 15 to 25 minutes depending on thickness of filet.
