A super simple recipe I found on Allrecipes.

Brown Sugar Glazed Salmon

¼ cup packed light brown sugar
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
4 (6 oz.) boneless salmon fillets
salt and ground black pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400°.
Season the salmon with salt and pepper and arrange onto a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Whisk together the brown sugar and Dijon mustard in a small bowl; brush mixture evenly onto top of salmon fillets. Bake until the fish flakes easily with a fork, 10 to 15 minutes.

Makes 4 servings.

I really didn't change much here. The original called for the salmon to be cooked under the broiler, but since I had another dish that was baking at the same time, I baked them. My fillets were small enough (the skinniest ones I have ever seen!), that it took almost no time.

I really didn't think I would like this very much, but it was great. I thought the mustard would be too strong, but the combination of it and the brown sugar was the perfect flavor complement to the salmon. Absolutely delicious.

I served it with Muffin Tin Potatoes and Italian Peas.
