My Review

Salmon and mustard go really well together! I loved the sour tang from the lemon juice and the texture of the grainy mustard. The filet was super flaky and cooked to absolute perfection. The potatoes and asparagus were just the right complement.

  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons grainy mustard
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup fresh dill chopped and divided
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 2- pound filet steelhead or King salmon skin on

My Review

Boyfriend made the best eggs and french fries. After he tried this dish at a Peruvian restaurant, he wanted to try to make it himself. It didn’t turn out exactly the same but, man, it was good! It had so much flavor and different elements.

We served it with… a brown and wild rice mix

Mmm, mmm! I was super impressed by the creaminess of this sauce. It didn’t taste dairy-free at all. Both the mushrooms and chicken were so plump and juicy. There was no hint of coconut, it was savory, hearty deliciousness.

  3. Oh my goodness, all of these look so good! I love salmon, and the idea of pairing it with mustard sounds amazing!
    Also I’m super impressed with that beef stir fry. Homemade French fries AND perfectly fried eggs?! That takes some pretty incredible skills! The combination of flavors sounds delicious! Thanks for sharing, lovely!! ❀

    1. Oh my gosh, the salmon & mustard was such a good combo. I think you’d love it! The stir fry was really impressive to me, too! I told him your compliments & he said, “thank you! it’s easy to fry the perfect egg & make homemade french fries” & now, he is still rambling on right now, the instructions on how to do both, he sounds like a cookbook LOLOL.

      1. Oh my gosh that’s too funny about him rambling on like a cookbook! I had to tell Joshua, it had me cracking up! XD For the record, I find it VERY difficult to cook the perfect egg! I have to cook them sunny-side up or the yolks always break. -_-

          1. Lol! Oh my gosh that’s so not true. I just use a low heat and put a lid on sunny-side up eggs so it cooks the top at the same time. For flipped eggs, regardless of my spatula, the yolks still break when I flip them! They are so difficult to flip without breaking.
            Lol anywayyy kitchen struggles XD XD
