something new

So my in-laws went to France last week and brought back Dijon mustard and herbes de Provence back for me. So today I decided to use the salmon portions that we got from the Lidle and try something new.

So lay down a piece of tin foil and put a generous portion of baby spinach leaves down. Then take your salmon portion and place it on top. Next sprinkle the herbes de provence on the salmon. Take a teaspoon or so of the dijon mustard and put a line of it along the salmon. Close up the tin foil and put into a 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes. Depending on the thickness of your salmon portions you might need a little more time or a little less time in the oven.

Now to go with this I made a simple mushroom risotto.

I plated the risotto and then with a spatula put the spinach on top. Then drizzled any juice left over the top of everything.

I have to say it turned out smashingly well if I do say so myself.

So what do you do if you can't find herbes de provence? Well the ingredients in this version is thyme, basil, savory, fennel seeds, and lavender flowers. You might be able to find it in the fancy area of the spice section of your supermarket.
