A few weeks ago I received an early released copy of Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry, courtesy of Ten Speed Press. It was a very exciting and unexpected surprise. I couldn’t wait to flip through it, make a few recipes, and tell you all about it!
I have been following Elana’s website for a few years and have purchased every cookbook she has published for myself, family members, and friends.
What I love about Elana’s recipes is the simplicity and minimal, quality ingredients she uses. All of her recipes are gluten free and grain free without sacrificing taste or requiring you to stock your pantry with 1,000 different ingredients you can’t find at the grocery store unless you ask for help. Believe me, I’ve searched the web for comparable recipes only to find bakers/cooks who use 5 different types of sugars, 6 different types of flours, 3 different types of oils and that’s just for ONE recipe! “Ain’t Nobody Got Time for Dat!”
Now…on to what you’ve all been waiting for….Put away the excuses of “I don’t have time to prepare clean meals”, take out your salmon and mustard; give me 20 minutes and you’ve got a clean, lean, Pump & Shred approved meal ready to serve!
Elana’s Pantry Mustard Salmon Fillet
Mustard Salmon Fillet
1 1/2 pounds wild salmon fillet
1 cup Dijon mustard
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Rinse the salmon and pat dry. Place the salmon skin side down in a 13 by 9-inch baking dish. Spread the mustard over the salmon.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until cooked through, then serve.
