Deviled means that the main ingredient of a dish, whether it is meat, fish, poultry, or something else, has been seasoned with spicy ingredients such as cayenne pepper, mustard or a similar ingredient. Deviled eggs, for example, are a very popular dish. A spicy sauce is sometimes used in salmon recipes and the following recipe uses mustard spread to give the salmon a spicy kick. You can use any kind of mustard for this. If you like the piquant flavor, opt for Dijon mustard or English mustard. There are also a variety of sweet mustards and mustard spreads that would be fine too.
The zucchini, eggplant, and bell pepper give crispness and juiciness to this dish, as well as adding plenty of color. If you are wondering what side dish to serve with this deviled salmon, what about baking some shoestring fries? Sprinkle some grated parmesan and paprika over them before baking, to add a delicious flavor that will echo the spiciness in the deviled salmon. If your oven is big enough, you can bake the fries simultaneously. Potatoes or rice would be other options.
Keep an eye on the salmon while it is cooking, to make sure it does not dry out, because you are cooking at a very high temperature. When it is done, keep it warm on a warmed plate with some aluminum foil tented over it, while you finish cooking the vegetables. Alternatively, start cooking the veggies five minutes before you add the salmon to the baking tray, then everything should be ready at more or less the same time.
