SHAPE-UP HEALTH, DIET-Mustard-Crusted Salmon

Mustard-Crusted Salmon
This updated French bistro dish makes a simple dinner any night of the week. You might want to consider doubling the batch and using the remaining salmon in a tossed salad the next day, or even as the salmon topper in the Warm Salmon Salad with Crispy Potatoes.
  • 1 1/4 pounds center-cut salmon fillets, cut into 4 portions
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons stone-ground mustard
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • Lemon wedges
1. Preheat broiler. Line a broiler pan or baking sheet with foil, then coat it with cooking spray.
2. Place salmon pieces, skin-side down, on the prepared pan. Season with salt and pepper. Combine sour cream, mustard and lemon juice in a small bowl. Spread evenly over the salmon.
3. Broil the salmon 5 inches from the heat source until it is opaque in the center, 10 to 12 minutes. Serve with lemon wedges.
