THE BEST Salmon Recipe!!


Sesame Dijon Salmon with Tamari Kale
New recipe my hubby is absolutely in love with (thank goodness... It isn't easy to get him to like something healthy).
Makes 4 servings.

1 lb. raw salmon filet, sliced into quarters
Lemon Juice, 2 tbsp.
Tamari sauce, 2 teaspoons
Grey Poupon hearty grain brown mustard (with the brown speckles), 2 tbsp.
4 tbsp. sesame seeds
salt & pepper
3 cups kale, chopped (can substitute spinach, but it's not the same texture)

Top salmon with sesame-dijon "crust" by first squirting lemon juice over salmon fillets. Next, add salt & pepper to taste. Spoon a half-tbsp. of the Grey Poupon mustard onto each filet (meat side, not skin side), and use the back of the spoon to spread the mustard around. Finish topping by sprinkling 1 tsp. sesame seeds on each piece of fish - spread evenly so as to create a "crust" look on top of the meat.

Coat a skillet with olive oil and turn to med-high heat. At the same time, preheat oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit. Start by searing the salmon on its skin side for 5-7 minutes or until edges start to turn.

At the same time, heat another skillet with olive oil to med. heat and add kale. Saute until greens soften up a bit, but do not wilt completely. Toss tamari sauce and remaining sesame seeds with Kale to finish.

Transfer salmon to the oven for another 10 minutes, or until salmon looks to be 90% cooked. Turn on broiler function on oven and allow dijon-sesame crust to turn a little brown on the edges.

Top kale with salmon filets and enjoy!
