Combining garlic and mustard is just an ingenious idea. I didn’t come up with that idea, fyi. But the two taste so very good together.
I have a funny little story.
Once, eons ago when we were young and fun, there was a young man named Brian. His last name is not important (it’s Beyrouty, and he’s my brother-in-law). Now, this anonymous Brian, he loves mustard. He loves mustard so much, he puts it on everything.
One day, Brian had a drink or 6, and kept going on and on about how much he loved mustard. Well, for dinner that night, I had grilled some bratwurst, so mustard was a no-brainer topping. Brian had a bratwurst in a bun, and squirted…oh…about a 1/4 cup of yellow mustard on said bratwurst.
But that wasn’t enough. He then took a bun – sans brat – and dumped another…oh….1/4 cup of yellow mustard on said bun, and ate it. In one bite. As we all rolled on the floor laughing, Brian simply looked around at us and said, “What? I like mustard.”
I won’t get into the yellow-ish details that followed that night and the next morning. But let’s just be clear: Brian REALLY likes mustard. Always has, always will.
Oh, and this is a really good recipe for salmon. It has mustard in it. You should try it. It’s Brian approved.
