dijon salmon

I guess I’m just really obsessed with Dijon mustard. Today’s lunch was a garlic, thyme, olive oil, and Dijon salmon (roasted at 450 for 13 minutes) and some couscous. I feel quite successful and in-control when I actually cook actual food for lunch. It’s usually an egg sandwich of some kind.

My mom saw fancy flaked salt on my Amazon wishlist and (after making fun of me) bought me some this weekend. What a gem of a lady! Good salt is such a game-changer. Only about 6 flakes went on the top of this and it packs in the flavor and gives a very satisfying crunch.

P.S. Everyone watch The Great British Baking Show. Hope I’m not the last on this bandwagon but EVERYONE WATCH IT.

chicken breasts dijon

Boneless skinless chicken breasts need quite a bit to catch anyone’s eye. But I had some, and I had to use them!!!! I was intrigued by Bon Appetit’s recipe for Chicken Breasts Dijon, mainly because I had most of the ingredients. Which was more than I could say for any other ones. I had to modify a bit of the timing and ingredients since I was only making one serving, not 4.

It was not the most beautiful dish, but it was very very tasty. The sauce of sauteed onions with Dijon was almost sweet, and I’m sure it would be even better with the leeks and white wine. Very good! And an exciting way to prepare a boring piece of meat. Also shout-out to my mom for visiting me this weekend and bringing me a boatload of fresh herbs. My herb garden died a looong time ago.
