Quick Weeknight Meal: Salmon with Sweet-N-Hot Mustard Glaze

Note: Since I usually make dinner for two adults, I cut this recipe in half and used one decent-sized salmon fillet.
3 1/2 lb. salmon fillets, skin on and pinbones removed
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
1/2 cup honey
2 T. water
2 T. fresh lemon juice
1 tsp. hot mustard powder (I substituted 1 tsp. of hot sauce for this ingredient and added 1 tsp. of regular mustard powder and it was delicious.)
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 T. chopped fresh dill
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Either coat a baking dish with cooking spray or cover a broiling pan with aluminum foil and lightly coat it with cooking spray. Place salmon on the dish or the pan and lightly season the fillet with salt and pepper.
Stir together the Dijon mustard, honey, water, lemon juice, hot mustard powder, and garlic powder. Reserve half of this sauce for later. Take the other half and spread on the salmon.
Bake the salmon for 15-20 minutes.
Stir the fresh dill into the reserved sauce. When the salmon is done baking, top the salmon with the remaining sauce.
As you can see from the picture above, I added two side dishes -- stir-fried zucchini and garlic-butter noodles, both of which were delicious with the salmon.
