Mustard Dill Salmon for Seniors Suffering from IBS

Feb 28th, 2010 | By | Category: For Senior Women

We made a major move three years ago.  It was really major for us…we had three sales in our home of 3/4 of our furniture, and ‘stuff’ we’d accumulated over the 45 years we’d  been married.  Then we moved out of state and started our communal living lifestyle.  We live 6 months in our part of our daughter and her husband’s  home and the other 6 months we share living arrangements with my sister and her husband.  Never in our lives would we have guessed we could even consider living with anyone else.  It turns out to be one of the greatest blessings of our lives.  We are both becoming better people.  We are growing in patience and tolerance, love and respect for each  other and those with whom we are living. 

My sister lives with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) in case you are wondering if those are her husband’s  initials.   I didn’t know much about this syndrome until we started preparing meals together.  This recipe  is one of the meals we discovered that is kind to her IB.  We loved it and  it is worth  sharing with you. 

4 servings         350 degree oven
1/3 cup Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp canola oil
1Tbsp dill weed
4 Tbsp packed brown sugar
1 1/2 lbs new potatoes cut in 1/4 inch slices
1 lb salmon filet
1 small bunch greens,  (mustard, collard or  kale)  roughly chopped
Mix mustard, oil, dill and brown sugar in a small bowl.  Place sliced potatoes in greased 9×13 baking dish and drizzle with 1/4 cup of the mustard sauce.  Toss till evenly coated. Arrange in dish and bake for 30-35 minutes.  Remove from oven.
Place salmon atop potatoes, spread 1 Tbsp of the mustard sauce over the salmon and return to  the oven and bake another 20-25 minutes until the salmon is done.
While the salmon bakes,  place washed and chopped greens in large skillet, toss with 2 Tbsp of the mustard sauce.  I added about 1/2 c water and sauteed over medium heat until greens are wilted…about 4-5 minutes.
Divide the greens between 4 plates, add potatoes atop the greens and 1 piece of salmon atop the potatoes. Top with remaining sauce.
Then sit down and  enjoy a delicious and healthy dinner!
