Mustard-Maple Salmon

I asked Andy to list his favorite dishes that I make, and this topped it. I am flattered whenever he has eaten salmon at a restaurant and proclaims that mine is better!

Mustard-Maple Salmon

3 Tbsp country style Dijon mustard
3 Tbsp pure maple syrup
1 Tbsp Balsamic vinegar
1 tsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp freshly ground pepper
4 (6 oz.) salmon fillets (about 1 inch thick)

Combine first 6 ingredients in a large Ziploc bag; add salmon. Seal bag and marinate in refrigerator for 20 minutes. Preheat broiler with oven rack in center of oven. Remove salmon from bag, reserving marinade. Place salmon on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray, or on a baking sheet lined with nonstick foil. Broil for 6 minutes on each side (baste salmon with reserved marinade after turning once) or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
