I love eating healthy fish recipes, and there’s question that salmon is a huge nutritional powerhouse, yet I’m not in love with the taste of salmon.
So when I eat it, I need a fabulous sauce to balance the taste of the fish. This Broiled Salmon in Wine Dijon Sauce fits the bill perfectly. It has just the right amount of butter that adds the silky base to the sauce but yet is still low in Weight Watchers Points.
The tang of the wine and Dijon work perfectly with the butter to create a most delicious sauce, which is truly an excellent complement to the fish.
Make sure to serve the salmon over rice or with some roasted veggies to sop of all that delectable sauce! This makes for a wonderful Weight Watchers salmon recipe that is incredibly quick and easy to prepare.
