Now this is a fish dish you can really relish! We don't mean to embellish its considerable attributes, but the tomato-mustard combination with which you'll cover the salmon is a thing of true poetry and prose, pretty as a rose, fragrant for your nose. The wild rice that accompanies makes this dish extra nice. Wait, why are all of you throwing your tomatoes at us? And that hook is coming out… Tip: Make quick work of mincing garlic by smashing the whole clove with the side of your chef's knife. Then rock the knife back and forth, keeping the tip steady by resting your other hand over the top.

Cook the Rice
Bring wild rice and 11/2 cups water to a boil in a medium pot. Lower to a simmer, cover, and cook until tender, 20-23 minutes.Simmering liquid should still be slightly bubbling.
