Roast/Poach: Salmon with Mustard

salmon and mustard

This is great at a dinner party or anytime. I get more compliments from this salmon dish and it’s so simple to prepare. Here’s my secret……
2-3 lb. Salmon Fillet
1 cup of your favorite mustard (my combo. 1/3 Dijon and 2/3 brown mustard)
1 tsp. fresh ground pepper
3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
Preheat oven at 400 degrees F
Salmon Paste: Mix in a small bowl, mustard, oil oil and pepper. Stir and set aside.
Cut two sheets of foil paper, (enough to fold over). Spray the foil with vegetable spray and place salmon on the bed of foil wrap.
Spread the mustard paste evenly and cover the on top. Poach/Roast for approximately 20 minutes.
Remove the salmon from the oven and let it rest for 10 minutes. Place the salmon on a platter and remove the foil paper. Garnish with my barets of cucumber, lemons, limes.
Ps – I usually garnish with dill (my first choice) but since I forgot to buy it (it happens), and was too lazy to go back to the market (that happens too), I got a little creative.
Tip: leftovers are perfect for salads, salmon cakes, sandwiches or pasta. I also like to serve this with broccoli sautéed with garlic and hot chili flakes and crusty Italian bread….
