It's me, the Silliest

This is my blog of recipes. I like "eating the rainbow" as well as globe-trotting through food. I totally dig heady local produce and local fresh meats.

Salmon with Mustard Potatoes

Ok, so this is my most favoritest salmon marinade ever - something about salmon and mustard really gets me goin. This is a great dish to freeze: I have done 4 extra portions at a time, thrown everything in a Ziploc and frozen for a month. It's a frozen meal that is good for you and not LOADED with bloody salt like all other "healthy" frozen meals. Have you noticed the salt content of other frozen meals? Go check it out... holy hell...

Salmon filets (do 6 and freeze some)
3 lbs baby red potatoes potatoes
1 lb brussel sprouts
2/3 C very nice English mustard
1/2 C very nice honey
3 TBSP lemon + 1 whole lemon extra

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the honey, mustard and 3 TBSP lemon together.

Rinse and quarter the potatoes. Use the Ziploc Zip n Steam bags (greeeat for doing roast potatoes... do it all the time in the winter) and cook potatoes in microwave accordingly.

Wash the salmon and the brussels and cut the brussels in half. Lay the cooked potatoes, brussels and salmon on a large baking sheet and brush everything with honey mustard. Cook for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove fish and set the oven to broil and then broil potatoes and brussels until golden brown. Serve this with Leek Cheese Sauce.

Freeze the rest by simply throwing everything (salmon, potatoes, brussels and sauce) in either a Ziploc with the air sucked out or a Tupperware container.
