I follow a number of chefs on instagram because like any true foodie, I love looking at pictures of good food. This guy calls himself “The Dancing Chef” and claims his food is so good, it will make you dance. So I figured ‘hey, I’ll dance for some good food. Lets try one of his recipes’. I decided to go with the sweet potato crusted salmon and the cranberry curry brown rice. Just let me say this…that brown curry rice will especially make you dance!
Sweet Potato Crusted Salmon
2 lbs of Atlantic Salmon
1 cup of shredded sweet potatoes
2 Tbsp of Dijon Mustard
1/3 cup of fresh Parsley
Pinch of Salt
Pinch of Lemon Pepper
Preheat oven at 350 degrees. Then in a grill pan sear the bottom of the salmon for 5 minutes until you see light grill marks. Remove salmon from the grill and place on a lightly greased baking sheet.
Mix mustard and mayo. Spread on top of salmon until completely coated then sprinkle the shredded sweet potato over the top. Add salt and lemon pepper.
Cook salmon in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Potatoes should be stiff to the touch.
