Blue Cheese Herb Mustard Salmon

I'm particularly proud of this salmon for two reasons. The first reason is because my husband actually LOVED it.  Since Chris is far from a fish eater (with the exception of that that comes in a shell or in the form of a sushi roll) that's a huge victory. WIN! The second reason is because it's super quick and easy to make.

I felt inspired by my foodie pen pal package and decided to make the blue cheese herb mustard as the star of my simple dinner.

Here's what you'll need:
  1. 1 lb salmon
  2. 3 tablespoons blue cheese herb mustard (or any other kind of spicy tasty mustard)
  3. salt & pepper

Make it:
  1. Get a large naked (no oil or butter - nothing!)  skillet  screaming hot on your stove top.
  2. Season the salmon with salt & pepper on both sides.
  3. Cook the salmon on each side for a couple of minutes.
  4. With the skin side down spread the mustard on the pink fleshy part of the salmon.
  5. Pop your skillet under the broiler for 7-9 minutes (or until your fish is cooked through). Make sure your skillet handle is oven safe!
  6. Serve the salmon with a side of grilled asparagus and greens.

Tip: for a quick salad dressing mix olive oil, mustard and lemon juice together. Toss your greens in it and you've got a salad that automatically compliments the flavors in your fish!
