One of my favorite fish to eat is Salmon. I like it prepared all different kinds of ways including raw, smoked, or cooked. I grill salmon a lot, and sometimes it seems to get a little boring, which is why I came up with this recipe. This salmon bursts with flavor and is anything but boring…you would never believe how healthy it is for you! It has such a robust taste and just melts in your mouth when you eat it. It would be great on top of salads or mixed for fish cakes, but I love to eat it on its own. The sauce that I glaze the salmon with is so creamy and flavorful, I like to double the recipe and serve it with the salmon for dipping. This is a great recipe for a crowd or dinner party because it takes less than 30 minutes to prepare and make (no joke) and looks elegant. Everyone at my dinner table was very impressed!
Ingredients: Serves 6
6 8 oz Salmon filets
2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
2 tablespoons fresh chopped thyme
2 tablespoons fresh chopped rosemary
3 garlic cloves, miced
2 tablespoons white wine (I used a Pinot Grigio)
2 tablespoons olive oil
2-4 scallions (depending on how large they are)
2 tablespoons dijon mustard
3 tablespoons whole grain mustard
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
To make the sauce: combine the parsley, rosemary, thyme, both mustards, wine, olive oil, and garlic in a bowl and whisk together.
Season the salmon with salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for about 3 minutes then take out and top with sauce. Put the salmon back in the oven to finish cooking- should take 8 to 10 minutes depending on how rare you like it.
Top the salmon with the chopped scallions and serve with lemon wedges. Enjoy!
I used my leftovers for salmon cakes the next day but you can also add them to omelets, top on salads, or put in sandwiches.
