Mustard Glazed Salmon

Mustard Glazed Salmon is such a delectable delight. How can you go wrong with this fish. If you enjoy mustard and maple syrup you will enjoy this very fast and easy dish. Here is the recipe---

MAPLE GLAZED SALMON Number of servings: 4-6
4-6 salmon fillets or steaks ½ lime, juiced
Salt and pepper to taste ¼ cup pure maple syrup
½ tsp grated fresh ginger ¼ cup Dijon mustard
½ lime, zested 1 tbsp olive oil
Check salmon fillets for bones and remove any you find. Preheat broiler. Mix all sauce ingredients and heat in microwave to meld flavors. Salt and pepper salmon and cook under broiler (on a broiler pan) for 5-8 minutes, depending on thickness of salmon. During the last 3-5 minutes, apply sauce with a pastry brush. Apply as many layers of sauce as you wish to achieve the appropriate amount of glazing.
Notes: The glaze has maple syrup in it and if you use a heavier glaze it should be cooked lower in oven to avoid burning the maple syrup.

This recipe was so easy and I enjoyed that it has fresh ginger and lime. The one item I changed was the maple syrup. I used the run of the mill Mrs. Butterworth's Maple Syrup. 

I have been working on my writing. I wrote an article recently on Tony Hsieh who makes for an excellent role model to all those Wall Street, CEOs, and white collar excutives. More of those corporate junkies should have the morals and values of Hsieh.
Role Model: Tony Hsieh, Founder of Zappos
I also wrote an article on another one of Gerry Anderson's characters from Thunderbirds. They are such characters and they never have to worry about walking.
