Salmon for Dinner from Giada

My dinner tonight thanks to Giada and a sale on salmon at my local Stop and Shop. It has a nice mustardy glaze. I served it with rice made with chicken broth and parsley and a green bean casserole. It can be made in under 20 minutes. It cooks faster than rice.
The salmon was tasty with that mustard flavor. It is very simple and doesn't take long at all to make. 
Here is the recipe. 

From Giada's Family Dinners
Serves 6

2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsp. Dijon mustard
2 tbsp. whole-grain mustard
3/4 tsp. finely chopped fresh rosemary
3/4 tsp. finely chopped fresh thyme
1 tbsp. dry white wine
1 tbsp. olive oil
Nonstick olive oil cooking spray
6 (6-to-8 ounce) salmon fillets
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
6 lemon wedges
In a small bowl, mix the garlic, both mustards, rosemary, and thyme. Mix in the wine and oil. Set the mustard sauce aside.

Preheat the broiler. Line a heavy rimmed baking sheet with foil and spray the foil with nonstick spray. Arrange the salmon fillets on the baking sheet and sprinkle them with salt and pepper. Broil for 2 minutes. Spoon the mustard sauce over the fillets. Continue broiling until the fillets are just cooked through and golden brown, about 5 minutes longer.

Transfer the fillets to plates and serve with lemon wedges.
