Salmon with Herbed Mustard Sauce
Heat broiler with rack 4 inches from the heat.Advertisement
Rinse salmon and pat dry with paper towels. Place salmon on a broiler pan and drizzle 2 tablespoons of lemon juice over the top. Season with salt and pepper. Broil until salmon is just cooked but still moist, 8 to 9 minutes. Remove the salmon's skin.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir together the mustard, remaining 2 tablespoons lemon juice, oil, dill, and basil. Spoon the sauce over the salmon and serve immediately.
The recipe calls for broiling the fish. If, like Weil, you prefer to grill when possible, heat a grill to medium, season the salmon as in step 2, place it skin-side down on the grill, and cook, covered, for 8 to 9 minutes.
