Dijon-Dill Salmon and Dijon Potatoes

Physical Activity: The husband and Kenan (our dog) accompanied me on a jog around noon for 2.25 miles in ~25 minutes.

Lunch: I wasn’t feeling hungry because of my late breakfast, but by 2pm I knew I had to eat something so I’d have an appetite for dinner at a decent hour.  I decided on leftovers from dinner last night:


salmon, potatoes, and a mixed green salad with balsamic vinaigrette

DSC01654Dijon-Dill Salmon:

– 4 oz frozen wild Alaskan salmon

– 1 Tbsp honey Dijon mustard

– squirt of lemon juice

– dash of dill weed

Squirt fillet with lemon juice; rub with mustard and dill.

The husband grilled this for me on a cedar plank for about 15 minutes.

Can you tell I was in the mood for dijon mustard last night?  🙂
