Broiled Salmon with Mustard Sauce
I am not sure where this recipe came from, but it is perfect for a summer evening.
I used this on the broiler rather than a plank in a fire with salmon on the plank.
- 1½ - 1¾ pound, ¾-inch thick unskinned salmon
- ½ cup Dijon mustard
- ½ cup mayonnaise
- 1 t. chopped fresh dill
- 1 minced garlic clove
- Zest and juice of ½ lemon
In a small bowl, combine mustard, mayonnaise, dill, garlic, lemon zest and lemon juice.
Vegetable spray a broiling rack. Place salmon on top. Spread sauce on salmon. Position rack 6 inches from the heat. Grill until fish flakes with a fork in the thickest part, about 12 minutes.
