easy glazed salmon

Ok this is actually the easiest thing to make and it's so good you'll want to make it every week!  Serve it with salad, steamed veggies, some rice or sweet potatoes...anything goes.

what you need:
*serves 2
  • 2 pieces fresh salmon
  • 1 tbsp grainy mustard
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • salt and pepper
what to do:
  1. Preheat oven to 425 F.
  2. Pat salmon lightly with paper towel.  Season with salt and pepper.  Mix mustard and brown sugar well, then even coat the top of the salmon pieces.  
  3. Place salmon skin side down on baking dish generously lined with aluminum foil and fold opposite corners of the aluminum a little bit to cover salmon (but don't let it touch the mustard mixture).  Bake in middle rack for about 12-15 minutes or longer, depending on the size of your fish and how well done you like it.
  4. For the last minute or two, open the foil up to expose salmon and turn the oven to broil and watch carefully to avoid burning.  It is done once the sugar caramelizes slightly and is bubbling a little.
  5. Remove from oven and allow to cool a few minutes.  The salmon should come away easily from it's skin.  Serve immediately and enjoy!
