Glazed Salmon with Dilly Mustard Sauce (Cooks Illustrated)

Glazed Salmon with Dilly Mustard Sauce

Serves 4

Broilers vary in heat output, so cooking times can vary dramatically. When you are broiling, it is best not to walk away from the oven. Keep a close watch on your food, and start checking after a few minutes.

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill leaves , plus a few sprigs for garnish
4 salmon fillets , each about 6 ounces

Table salt and ground black pepper

1. Adjust oven rack so that it sits about 6 inches from heating element and heat broiler. Line rimmed baking sheet with foil for easy cleanup.

2. Whisk mustard, honey, and vinegar in medium bowl. Whisk in oil, then transfer 3 tablespoons mustard mixture to small bowl and stir in soy sauce. Whisk dill into mustard mixture in medium bowl.

3. Arrange salmon fillets on baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper and brush top and sides with mustard-soy glaze. Broil salmon until tops are just browned and a peek at inside of fish with paring knife shows that they are just cooked through, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer salmon to serving platter, garnish with dill sprigs, and serve with mustard-dill sauce.
