Slow-Cooked Garlic Mustard Salmon

IMG_4192

One time, in the airport security check out coming home from California, I had an item confiscated. It was a beautiful, rich, flavorful bottle of Napa Valley Garlic Mustard. It was a sad, sad day. Alas, the bottle was gone, but my love for garlicky mustard is so not! And the combination tastes even better on salmon! Here’s a lean, delicious way to get some protein in your diet. The slow-cook method for the salmon, makes it soft, eliminates fishy taste, and adds a velvety texture to the flakes.

Recipe (Serves 4)
1.5 lb salmon filet
1 shallot, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp whole grain dijon mustard
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
1.5 tsp chopped fresh rosemary
Sea salt
Pepper

Preheat oven to 250 degrees, putting an oven safe dish filled with water on the lowest rack
Portion the salmon into 4 roughly 6-7 oz. pieces
Salt each piece
Make the seasoning by mixing the shallots, garlic, mustard, worcestershire, and rosemary– it will be thick
Slather evenly on each piece and finish off with some pepper
Cook in oven for about 40 minutes or until the salmon starts to flake
