Fresh Basil (Not Rathbone or Faulty)

I just made salmon...and the single best thing you can do with salmon is use fresh basil. Frankly, you could throw fresh basil in just about anything and I'd be happy.




And if you're ever left wondering how to cook salmon its really pretty simple. Get a small bowl and in it mix liberal amounts of dijon mustard, fresh black pepper, oregano, dill, white wine and lemon juice. Mix well and coat the salmon. Top with fresh basil leaves and cook.

Other than the fact that I don't like Salmon, pepper or mustard, that sounds good ;) haha

Beautiful picture! Basil is delicious on fresh buttered corn, also!! I love it... the perfect marriage of flavors.

I prefer mine brushed lightly with olive oil, then grilled with fresh cracked pepper and lemon juice. Served with summer squash and carrots. Mmmm... is it lunch yet?

We eat salmon very often. I think this is the next way we'll prepare it.

Thanks.
