A note about serious food allergies

Pretzels are known for a tough, salty exterior; salmon is known for flaky, delicateness, light as a feather. Bringing them together? The best dinners are known as lands of contrasting textures, and this quick-and-easy beauty is not any different, with bright mustard being the glue that holds these two together. (Literally!) Call in a study in contrasts, call it opposites attract… we call it yummy.

Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Prepare the Ingredients

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut cauliflower florets into bite-sized pieces. Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate. Pat salmon fillets dry, and season flesh side with a pinch of salt and pepper. If using wild-caught salmon fillets or chicken breasts, follow same instructions and season same amount.

  • Step 2 - Start the Cauliflower

    Start the Cauliflower

    Bring a medium pot with cauliflower, 1½ cups water, white portions of green onions, and ¼ tsp. salt to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-high and stir occasionally until water evaporates, 10-12 minutes. Remove from burner. While cauliflower cooks, roast salmon.

  • Step 3 - Roast the Salmon

    Roast the Salmon

    Place salmon on prepared baking sheet, skin side down, and brush each top with Dijon. Top evenly with pretzel breading and drizzle with 1 tsp. olive oil. You may not use all the pretzel breading. Roast in hot oven until crust browns and salmon reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 12-15 minutes. If using chicken breasts, follow same instructions and roast until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 16-18 minutes. If using wild-caught salmon, follow same instructions and roast until salmon reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 9-11 minutes. While salmon roasts, finish cauliflower.

  • Step 4 - Finish the Cauliflower

    Finish the Cauliflower
