salmon with dijon tarragon sauce…& the proposal!

26 Mar

It’s been a crazy week and I haven’t had much time to get in the kitchen and cook. However, last week I got an update from one of my favorite blogs (Life’s Ambrosia) with a killer recipe for Salmon with Dijon Tarragon sauce. Being the good little Catholic that I am, I made it on Friday & it came out FANTASTIC. Seriously. Charlie’s exact words were, “You could make this when people come over.” Needless to say, it was a winner!


Salmon with Dijon Tarragon Sauce

You will need:

  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • pinch of granulated sugar
  • kosher salt
  • fresh cracked black pepper
  • 4 salmon filets
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick spray.
  3. Combine mayonnaise, dijon mustard, tarragon and sugar together in a bowl. Mix well. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  4. Place salmon on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and spoon a dollop of sauce over the top. Return to the oven for 5 more minutes. Fish is done when it flakes easily.
  5. Serve with remaining sauce on the side.

Here’s the link to her recipe: Salmon with Dijon Tarragon Sauce.. I definitely recommend that you peruse through her other recipes as well, I’ve tried like 15 of them and they’ve always been delicious!

In other, non-food related news, Charlie proposed on Wednesday!! Ahh! I feel so lucky and blessed to have found someone like him, and I’m so excited to start our life together! I’ve had a few people ask how it all went down so I figured I’d just post it here. I was rushing out the door to get to work and was seriously pissed. I’m just not a morning person, ya’ll. And I’m ALWAYS rushing. So anyway, I gave him a kiss goodbye and took off down the stairs.. get to the bottom step and he calls me back upstairs to our bedroom. At this point, I’ve completely given up being on time, and I’m mad. I stomp into our bedroom (I’m the oldest in my family, I have a MEAN stomp) and there he is, on one knee, with the ring in his hand. What happened after was a complete whirlwind, I was crying and I think kind of yelling, and so incredibly happy. I had absolutely no idea it was coming, and it was the best surprise of my life!


I said yes, of course. 🙂 Oh also, HAPPY SPRING!!!! Yay!!
