grilled salmon with mustard beurre blanc served over mustard roasted potatoes and green beans


For the fish:
1 shallot, peeled and minced
1 cup dry white wine
2 ounces fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon heavy cream
1 tablespoon whole grain Dijon mustard
12 tablespoons cold butter, cubed
Salt and pepper
canola oil
1 – 2 pounds salmon fillets

For the veggies:
2 lbs. fingerling potatoes
1 lb. green beans, end trimmed
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
Kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


For the roasted veggies:
1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
2. Cut the potatoes in half and place them on a sheet pan. Place green beans on separate sheet pan.
3. Make the vinaigrette: whisk olive oil, mustard, 1 tsp. salt, and the pepper.
4. Pour half the vinaigrette over the potatoes and the other half over the green beans. Toss each to coat.
5. Bake potatoes for 50 minutes to 1 hour, until they are lightly browned on the outside and tender on the inside. Toss the potatoes from time to time with a metal spatula so they brown evenly.
6. Bake the green beans 15-20 minutes, or until they are crispy but not soggy.

For the fish:
1. In a heavy bottomed pot, combine shallots, white wine, and lemon juice. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until reduced to 2 tablespoons. Add cream and mustard; stir and reduce heat to low. While whisking continuously, add one cube of butter at a time allowing it to melt before adding the next. The key to this sauce is adding the butter slowly over low heat so it does not break. Once all of the butter is incorporated and the sauce is creamy, remove from heat and add salt and pepper to taste. If you’re not serving this immediately, cover and keep it warm on the stove.
2. Turn all burners to medium heat if using gas grill. Clean and oil grill. Season salmon with salt and pepper. Grill until the fish is cooked all the way through, but still flaky.
3. Plate over roasted fingerling potatoes and green beans and top with a spoonful of the mustard Beurre Blanc.
