"This is such a nice easy sauce to make. I serve it over my Five Ingredient Salmon, but you can also serve this over grilled, steamed and roasted vegetables - asparagus is wonderful; poached eggs; other fish or seafood; and even grilled lamb chops. It is sweet from the honey, but just enough tang from the mustard."

Step 1

Sauce ... Add the cream, honey and mustard to a small pot, whisk well, and bring to medium high heat, or a light boil. Reduce to a simmer and continue to cook for 10-15 minutes. The cream will naturally thicken. Just remember to whisk every couple of minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. If you want, you can stir in some fresh dill - this is optional.

Step 2

Serve ... This is NOT a thick sauce, but more a drizzle. It is just thick enough to complement the dish but not over power it. Great over salmon or any seafood; vegetables, asparagus is my favorite; poached eggs and even grilled lamb chops. ENJOY!
