Roasted Garlic and Dijon Salmon with Watercress

Let the detoxing begin! The one thing I love about January is that I normally go on a health kick because i've eaten and drank so much during the month of December. I'm exercising more because i'm no longer using my spare time finding the perfect gift, and i'm not eating any more sweets or what seems like 5 meals in one. Along with a large glass of lemon, lime and cayenne water in the morning, barley, lemon, ginger and cinnamon tea, i'm also eating fabulous meals. Tonight's was especially healthy as it contained one of the best super-foods out there – watercress. Watercress is a top source of vitamins C, B1, B6, K and E, iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese and zinc. My husband is also awesome at making healthy food taste just as good as dessert! Here's what he did.

What you’ll need
Chicken stock

What to do
Roast some garlic in tinfoil in the oven. Remove each clove and mash together with some dijon mustard. Broil the salmon. Lightly saute the watercress in a wok with some garlic (not the one you mixed with the dijon) and chicken stock. Spread the garlic and dijon mustard over the cooked salmon and serve with the watercress.
