This dish has a very mild taste that is nicely complimented with the garlic mashed potatoes and topped with some peppery arugula.

Ingredients: Serves 2
- 2 3-4 ounce wild salmon fillets
- 1 tablespoon creamy dijon mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon dry thyme
- 1/4 teaspoon dry rosemary, crumbled between palms of your hands
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon cracked black pepper
- 1 clove crushed garlic
- 1 tablespoon dry white wine
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
Garlic Mashed Potatoes:
- 2 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 1 clove garlic
- 1/8 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup baby arugula
In a small cup mix together the mustard, thyme, rosemary, salt, pepper, garlic, white wine and olive oil. Spread the mixture evenly on one side of the salmon pieces.
In the meantime, place the peeled and cubed potatoes in a pot of cold salted water. Add the clove of garlic. Bring to a boil and cook until fork tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and add the butter and milk. Cover and allow the butter to melt. Mash.
Spray a skillet with some non stick spray. When hot add the salmon, herb side down and cook over medium low heat 3 minutes. Carefully turn the salmon over and cook an additional 3 minutes. This will be medium/rare.
Serve the salmon over the mashed potatoes and top off with some arugula. Enjoy!
