Dijon mustard sauce is a versatile condiment, often spooned over a variety of dishes, from baked chicken breasts, salmon fillets, roast beef, pork chops to lobster. The creamy sauce adds a tangy richness to meat and seafood recipes, instantly elevating them from boring to flavourful. Use the sauce to make an ordinary dish dinner, party-worthy.
