Broiled Salmon with Herb Mustard Glaze

Salmon night again! Thanks to Google's new recipe search we found this lovely recipe from my fav--Giada!

Check out the recipe from the Food Network website here; you can also watch the video! Unfortunately the recipe and the video preparation aren't quite the same. I'll add my thoughts/notes here about what worked from the recipe and what we should've done from the video.

Broiled Salmon with Herb Mustard Glaze by Giada de Laurentiis
Serves 6

2 garlic cloves
3/4 tsp rosemary, finely chopped
3/4 tsp thyme, finely chopped
1 tbsp dry white wine
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
2 tbsp Dijon mustard*
2 tbsp whole-grain mustard* (*we used 4 tbsp Dijon mustard)
nonstick olive oil cooking spray
6 (6 to 8-oz) salmon fillets
salt and freshly ground pepper
6 lemon wedges

In a mini food processor, combine garlic, rosemary, thyme, wine, oil, Dijon mustard, and 1 tablespoon of whole-grain mustard. Grind the mustard sauce until combined, about 30 seconds. Transfer to a small bowl. Add remaining 1 tablespoon of whole-grain mustard to the sauce and stir to combine. Set aside mustard sauce. *We incorporated all of the mustard (4 tbsp regular Dijon mustard) into the sauce in the processor.

Mid broil, after adding sauce to the salmon. Our squash and zucchini are sauteing in the pan.

Preheat the broiler. Line a heavy rimmed baking sheet with foil. Spray the foil with nonstick spray. Arrange the salmon fillets on the baking sheet and sprinkle them with salt and pepper. Broil for 2 minutes. Spoon the mustard sauce over the fillets. Continue broiling until the fillets are just cooked through and golden brown, about 5 minutes longer. *Next time I would broil longer before adding the mustard sauce.
Transfer the fillets to plates and serve with lemon wedges.
