Saturday, March 22, 2008 Tried & True: Broiled Salmon with Herb Mustard Glaze

One of the favorites that my father always requests when he visits is Broiled Salmon with Herb Mustard Glaze. It's super simple and fabulous. The fresh herbs add a kick and I tend to also use a bit more of whole grain mustard as well.
