Salmon with Mustard Soy Glaze

Salmon is one of my favorite things to cook for a mid week dinner because it is super quick to cook, needs very little preparation, and it is so rich and tasty that it doesn’t feel like a meal that got slapped together at the last minute even when it has been. This recipe, in particular, is so fast to make that I actually put the whole meal together in 10 minutes one night last week.

I whisked the glaze together in a bowl and poured it over the salmon. Then I quickly snapped some asparagus and rolled it on a pan in some extra virgin olive oil and kosher salt. I popped them in the oven together and then made some couscous. Once cooked, the glaze from the bottom of the pan makes a nice drizzle for the couscous, which, can, I admit, sometimes be a bit plain.
