Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 4 teaspoons Chinese-style hot mustard
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets (about 1 inch thick)
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 425°.
  2. Combine first 4 ingredients in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Remove from heat.
  3. Place fish on a foil-lined jelly roll pan coated with cooking spray; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake at 425° for 12 minutes. Remove from oven.
  4. Preheat broiler.
  5. Brush sugar mixture evenly over salmon; broil 3 inches from heat 3 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
Note:

Chinese-style hot mustard has a sharp bite similar to that of wasabi. If you don't have it on hand, use Dijon mustard or 1 teaspoon of a dry mustard such as Coleman's.
