I've been lurking around, reading posts for a while, but now I finally have a yummy recipe to share! I found this on epicurious.com and made it last night - and was it good. Not too mustard-y or sweet. It got a 4.5 stars out of 5 from my family. They deducted a half star because the salmon was slightly burnt - such picky people! I seem to have trouble "browning" things in a skillet - they usually turn black! If anyone else has tried this, let me know what you think!
SALMON WITH MUSTARD MAPLE SAUCE
Active time: 20 min Start to finish: 20 min
4 (6- to 7-oz) pieces center-cut salmon fillet (1 1/4 inches thick), skinned
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
3 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 teaspoons mustard seeds
1/4 cup chopped scallion greens
Pat salmon dry and season with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then sauté salmon in 2 batches, starting with skinned sides up and turning over once, until just cooked through, 6 to 9 minutes per batch. Transfer to a platter and keep warm, covered.
Remove skillet from heat and cool 1 minute. Whisk in remaining ingredients and salt and pepper to taste. Pour sauce over salmon.
Makes 4 servings.
