I place salmon in a dish and pour about half of the honey mustard glaze over it. Then, preheat the broiler and place rack under it. With this glaze you have to watch that it doesn't burn, so I have had to move the salmon onto a lower rack to prevent it from becoming a burnt sacrifice! If that makes you nervous, you can bake the salmon instead in a 400 degree oven. Let's begin.
HONEY MUSTARD SALMON
1/4 cup dijon mustard
1/4 cup honey
1 large clove garlic, minced or pressed
1 tablespoon melted butter or olive oil
4 salmon fillets, mine were 4 ounces each,or 1 pound
salt and pepper
Mix the first four ingredients together. Lay salmon in a pan, add a little salt and pepper, and pour half of glaze over it. Preheat broiler or oven. when ready to cook, place salmon on low rimmed baking sheet and place under broiler. Watch closely so it doesn't burn. Brush salmon with honey- mustard glaze several times while cooking. It will be done in about 6-10 minutes, depending in thickness and size of salmon. To test for doneness, insert a fork into the thickest part of the fish and turn slightly. If it flakes easily, it is done. Remember, if the fish gets too brown, or the pan begins to burn, remove fish to a lower rack in your oven. When done , remove salmon from oven and serve! It's a quick and easy main course, fit for company or your family. I served it with fresh green beans and brown rice.
