Honey Mustard Salmon

This is a new recipe I tried out tonight. It is courtesy of Robin Miller, host of "Quick-Fix Meals" on Food Network. I was looking for a new salmon recipe, and this one is really fast and easy.

4 (5-6 ounce) salmon fillets
2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp dijon mustard
2 Tbsp honey
1 tsp lemon zest
salt and pepper

Spray a shallow baking dish with Pam or lightly coat with olive oil. Add the lemon juice, dijon mustard, honey and lemon zest. Stir to combine. Salt and pepper both sides of the salmon fillets. Add to the baking dish and coat both sides with the honey mustard mixture. Bake immediately or cover with plastic wrap and regrigerate for up to 3 hours.

When ready to bake, place the dish in a preheated 400 degree oven. Cook for 10 minutes or until fish is fork-tender. (Mine took a couple minutes longer, but it depends on the thickness of the fillets.)
