Green Parsley Sauce for Salmon

I’m not normally the come up with recipes completely out of thin air type. I don’t know if that will ever be me. But, I do sometimes make my own thing after being inspired by other recipes. I wanted to do something special for some salmon we had. In a cookbook I found a recipe that used mint (not our favorite ingredient), parsley, and lemon along with a few other ingredients. I decided to take from that and come up with something using what I had on hand. It ended up delicious and something I will make (or riff on) again.

Let’s also be clear: if you want to use this on chicken or something else, go for it. It doesn’t have to just be for salmon.

Directions for Green Parsley Sauce for Salmon

  • 1/2 cup parsley
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 2-3 Tablespoons olive oil

Put the parsley, garlic, honey, and Dijon in a food processor or blender and puree until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste, then add 2 Tablespoons of the olive oil and again blend until creamy and emulsified. If desired you can add more olive oil.

(Excuse the messiness of the salmon piece. I used the sous vide and it makes the fish falling-apart-tender.)
