Roasted Salmon with Mustard-Herb Sauce

Salmon is a very healthy fish so it should be eaten often.  I know a lot of people say they do not like salmon because it is too “fishy.”  I find that odd because that is exactly why I do like it, because it is not “fishy.”  Perhaps they are not getting it fresh?  Well no matter.  It is also a very versatile seafood that can be served with innumerable different sauces.  It can also be grilled, pan-fried, roasted, poached, you name it.  It is also good because it can be done to your specific liking.  What I mean is, it can be sort of rare, medium-rare or well done (cooked completely through).  Just like steak.  Oh yeah.  And it comes in a fillet or a steak!  The steak is usually less expensive, but fattier.

Then I found a different variety and that one was sweet and delicious, but expensive. Guava paste is not expensive.
