Recipe Redo: Herb Mustard Glazed Salmon

One of my favorite tried and true recipes is Giada de Laurentiis Broiled Salmon with a Herb Mustard Glaze. It’s one of those super quick meals out of a few pantry items. I follow a simple rule – if I plan on making fish – I buy it the day I plan on serving it. The guys at Whole Foods in Plymouth Meeting are so good – they send me home not only with a gorgeous piece of salmon, but they remove the skin (if asked), and put it with a nice bag of ice to keep it cold on the way home. How thoughtful, right?

I love the combo of both mustards along with the fresh herbs and shallots. A couple quick pulses of a food processor and your sauce is good to go. Serve this Herb Mustard Glazed Salmon with some asparagus and couscous and you have one heck of a weeknight dinner.
