Salmon with Pink Peppercorn Sauce & Cook for Mom Giveaway

Roasted Salmon

Our mom’s have given us so much. This Mother’s Day, let’s give back to mom by cooking her a special meal. How about this Roasted Salmon with creamy Pink Peppercorn Sauce. It’s simple and elegant, just how mom likes it!

When I think of my mom, three words come to mind: Tender, Wise and  Selfless.

Over the years my mother has listened with endless patience, offered insightful counsel, held her tongue when I didn’t take her advise, and given of herself more freely than any person I’ve ever known. She taught me the delicate balance of give-and-take in relationships. She taught me to hold personal character with the utmost importance.

Pink Peppercorn

I will never forget watching her help those less fortunate, even when our family resources were low. Or watching her stand her ground to protect our family, when she felt our values were under attack. She is a tribute to motherhood; I’m so very blessed to have her.

I only hope one day my children will think of me the way I revere my mother.

Mother’s Day shouldn’t be the only day we celebrate our mothers, but it is a wonderful reminder to stop and recollect the countless lessons they’ve taught us. Mom’s have a way of speaking into our lives like no ones else.

Roasted Salmon Recipe

For 11 years, KitchenAid has supported the Susan G. Komen for the Cure with their Cook for the Cure Project by making donations off every pink item sold, and inspiring us to  join the fight against breast cancer, for our moms, and for us all.

This year, the Cook for Your Mom Campaign encourages us to skip the crowded restaurants and make mom a home-cooked meal, like she’s been doing for us all along.

Cooking for your mom shows her that she is worth more than the few bucks you’d spend taking her out to lunch; she is worth your time.

Pink Peppercorn Sauce

Salmon is one of my mom’s favorite dishes, so this year I thought I’d make her roasted salmon with a creamy horseradish and pink peppercorn sauce. This roasted salmon recipe is a delightful way to celebrate mom, and is delightfully easy to make.

Salmon with Horseradish

The pink peppercorns, along with a nip of horseradish and fresh dill, provides a lovely burst of flavor over this rich, tender roasted salmon.

In 15 minutes you have a fresh and vibrant main course. Throw in a couple of mom’s favorite side dishes and you just might win the son/daughter of the year award! *wink*

    One thing I love about my mom, shes not a quitter, never has been and probably never will be. She amazingly raised 3 kids on her own without any help, sometimes even working 2 jobs, we never, never went without nor did we ever know that we were not the norm, she made our lives amazing! And then when we all grew up, she had the biggest challenge of her life, cancer and in true mom style she didnt quit, its amazing how you can be faced with such a disease and come up with a smile on your face, MOM I love you!!

    Your mother sounds like an amazing woman. I have a wonderful mother as well. This is a great idea to honor her on Valentine’s Day. I have salmon waiting in the frig. I’ll give this a try.
