Yesterday I went to one of Phillis Carey’s cooking classes and loved one of the recipes so much, I came home and made it for dinner! My husband was working late, and as i usually do when he’s not home for dinner, I made salmon. I had all the ingredients at home and was super excited to enjoy it again!
Baked Salmon with a Mustard Crumb Crust (Serves 4)
Recipe from Phillis Carey
2 Tbsp plus 1 tsp. distilled white vinegar
2 Tbsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp. powdered mustard
1/3 cup grapes or vegetable oil
4 (6 to 7 oz.) salmon fillets
Salt and pepper to taste
1 cup coarse fresh French bread crumbs
1. Place vinegar, sugar and both mustards in a blender or food processor. With the machine running, slowly pour in the oil and blend until medium-thick sauce forms.
2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place salmon fillets on a parchment-lined baking sheet and season with salt, pepper and thyme. Spread 1 Tbsp of the mustard sauce over each fillet, covering completely. Press breadcrumbs onto the fish and bake until cooked through and crumb topping is crisp and golden brown, 18 to 20 minutes. Serve salmon immediately, passing remaining mustard sauce separately.
I served the salmon with wild rice and steamed broccoli. Yum!
Monday night I was running around picking kids up here and there, so I defrosted and reheated a slice of Souperior Meatloaf and steamed some broccoli.
Thank you freezer!
After I took the kids to school, I went to Phillis’ cooking class at the La Jolla Community Center. The class was “Phillis’ Favs” and obviously included some of her favorite recipes.
The first recipe was Caesar Blue Cheese Salad with Bacon, Mushrooms and Pine Nuts:
Loved this salad! The dressing was delicious!!! Note to self: next time I have to bring a salad somewhere, bring this one!
The second recipe was the Baked Salmon with a Mustard Crumb Crust that I made last night:
Next up was Chicken Breasts Topped with Asparagus Hollandaise Mousse:
Yummy chicken! And I learned how to make hollandaise in the microwave so that was a plus!
The next recipe was Bourbon Flambeed Filet Mignon with Smoky Bacon Sauce:
Delicious!! Amazing sauce…was just missing a giant loaf of crusty bread to sop it up with!
Dessert was Chocolate Cherry Tart with a Brownie Crust:
Fabulous! This was rich and delicious!!! Another winning class!
Last night’s dinner:
Breakfast this morning:
I took the kids to school, ran errands and went to an appointment. Lunch was a roast beef sandwich, veggies and ranch dressing.
My son has two basketball games tonight so dinner will fit in somewhere in between. Lol.
What was the last new recipe you tried?
