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.

You Will Need
Before You Cook
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.
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.
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.
Finish the Cauliflower
Add cream cheese to pot with cauliflower and mash until mostly smooth and combined. Stir in green portions of green onions (reserve a pinch for garnish).
Cover and set aside.
