Salmon with honey mustard sauce and sweet potato chips

This recipe was a staple for me when the children were young and I didn’t have a lot of time.  It is quick to prepare, place in the oven and then come back to a done dinner.  The best thing is that now that they are so older, this is simple enough for them to prepare for us!

Vary the cooking time depending on how caramelised you like your sweet potatoes or how rare you like your salmon.  If you like your salmon well done, make more of the sauce so that it doesn’t dry out during the cooking process.
