Tonight’s dinner was simple to make, not too many ingredients, and pretty healthy (well, except for that
small amount…. OK, hearty amount, of butter!) But the rest…healthy, healthy, healthy!!!
Let’s start with the Salmon. Easiest item on the menu.
Champagne Dill Mustard Salmon over Greens
Simply Spray a foil lined pan with Coconut Oil
Season Salmon with Salt & Pepper
Coat Salmon with Mustard
20 mins or until desired doneness
OK. Like I said, pretty simple, eh??? Now, onto those potatoes. These were simply AMAZING!!!
That’s right. I said, WOODEN SPOON. SuperHuge TIP: The spoon acts as a holder for your potatoes when you are slicing them super thin. Holds them still and acts as a stabilizer! Pretty Neat! Let me show you:
Now, slice your garlic superthin and insert 4-6 cloves in each potato.
Repeat until you have enough potatoes to fill up your dish.
Now, for the decadent part:
Parsley Chive Butter Sauce
Bake in Oven 400 about 45 mins
Take out of Oven
Baste with Pan Drippings
Grate a little Fresh Parm Overtop Potatoes
Bake about 10 mins more
The outside should get crisp and delicious!
TIP: Before Serving, Spoon Reserved Butter Mixture with Herbs Mixed In Overtop Potatoes. Creates a bright green finish!
Now, for one last tip. And listen up, this is a good one.
It’s going to change the way you make crostini for the rest of your life.
What to do with that itty bitty clove of garlic that has been bathing in the butter/oil/herb mixture?
USE IT to make a Bangin’ Bruschetta!!!
After both sides are done, RUB THE GARLIC CLOVE all over the hot side of the crostini. The side that just came off the pan. This releases a subtle garlic flavor on the crostini without having to bite into a huge chunk of garlic.
It is delicious.
You will thank me later for this one!!!!
Now. let’s kick it up one last notch and make it into a healthy Bruschetta.
Lay Down a Basil Leaf of the Crostini
Top with a Mixture of Tomatoes, Mozzarella, Garlic, Shallots and Basil
Season with Sea Salt and Fresh Pepper
Drizzle Aged Balsamic
Now, Sit Down.
