Garlic Dijon Herb Salmon

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.
