Mustard Crusted Salmon

We both love our salmon and I am always looking for new ways to get our fill of this wonderful fish full of its omega 3 oils.  This particular recipe couldn't have been simpler with a simple seasoning of salt and pepper.  It was then covered with a mixture of sour cream, mustard and lemon juice.  We then grilled the salmon over medium heat for 10 minutes until just barely done.  It was simply served with lemon wedges.  Our side dish was broccoli with caramelized onions and toasted pine nuts.

It was really nice to have another way to serve our favorite fish.

Mustard-Crusted Salmon
Makes 2 servings

3/4 pound salmon fillet, center cut, cut into two pieces
1/8 teaspoon salt
Black ground pepper to taste
2 tablespoons low-fat sour cream
1 tablespoon stone-ground mustard
1 teaspoon lemon juice

Preheat grill to medium-high heat. 

Place salmon fillets skin-side down on a double folded sheet of aluminum foil.  Season with salt and pepper.  Combine sour cream, mustard and lemon juice in a small bowl.  Spread evenly over the salmon.

Grill the salmon for 10 minutes until it is opaque in the center, 10 to 12 minutes.  Serve with lemon wedges.
