A note about serious food allergies

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.

Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 Medium Pot
  • 1 Medium Non-Stick Pan

Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Cook the Rice
    1

    Cook the Rice

    Bring wild rice and 1½ 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. Don't worry if rice still has “bite” to it; wild rice has a firmer texture than regular rice. Remove from burner, fluff, and set aside covered. While rice cooks, prepare ingredients.

  • Step 2 - Prepare the Ingredients

    Prepare the Ingredients

  • Step 3 - Cook the Salmon

    Cook the Salmon

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and salmon, skin-side up, to hot pan. Cook until firm and salmon reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-6 minutes per side. Transfer salmon to a plate. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  • Step 4 - Make the Tomato Relish

    Make the Tomato Relish

    Return pan used to cook salmon to medium-high heat. Add butter and let melt. Once melted, continue cooking until butter begins to smell nutty and turns golden brown, 2-3 minutes. Add ½ tsp. olive oil, tomatoes, garlic, and half the parsley (reserve remaining for garnish). Stir occasionally until tomatoes blister, 1-2 minutes. Stir in mustard and a pinch of salt until thoroughly combined. Remove from burner.
