Several of my kids don't typically like fish and they actually enjoyed this salmon. The mustard/mayo sauce gives the fish a very rich full flavor. For the pilaf we didn't have beans in the house so we used edamame. It was wonderful! We'll definitely make this recipe again.
The salmon and sauce were very easy and tasty. The sauce did not overpower the fish just complemented it. For the rice I had to improvise because I had no green beans and no pine nuts. I steamed Brussels sprouts (about 10 large ones) for 5 minutes cut them in half and pretty much followed the recipe from there. I sautéed them until they began to brown in spots before adding the garlic mixture lemon zest and rice. It was delicious. I will use Brussels sprouts again next time. My whole family (husband and millennials) liked the recipe would have eaten more. So next time I will make extra.
This is definitely a repeater. I only had 2 portions of salmon but used the same amount of of the mustard mixture which we thought was too much. Next time I will cut that amount in half. It took a bit longer to cook the green beans so next time I will par boil them first. Great recipe.
This was a tasty meal that required minimal prep work. The flavors worked well together and even though I was worried about the lemon zest being too strong it wasn't. I only made half the amount of salmon because my husband doesn't like it but kept the other ingredient amounts the same. So I probably put a relatively larger amount of the mustard mix on top. I had to cook my salmon a little longer than the recipe called for but perhaps it would cook in the recommended time if put under a broiler? I just had mine in the middle of the oven.
