Asian Salmon

Asian Salmon and broccoli:
(2) 6oz salmon filets (i like skin on, but it doesn't matter)
2 tbs dijon mustard
3 tbs soy sauce
6 tbs olive oil
2 gloves garlic minced (1/4 tsp garlic powder)
1 cup frozen or fresh boccoli

Mix mustard, soy sauce, oil, and garlic until well combined. Brush a couple tbs over salmon filets. Heat a fry pan medium high and spray with non stick spray or a little oil. Place salmon skin side down for 4-5 minutes until you can see the salmon turned a lighter shade of pink half way through. Keep basting salmon as it cooks. Flip salmon and cook for another 4-5 minutes. Remove and brush on more sauce and let rest while you cook the broccoli. Should have a little less than half the sauce left over.

Cook broccoli in same pan as salmon. After 1-2 minutes, pour remaining sauce over broccoli and toss. Cover and let steam about 2-3 minutes until tender.

I like to serve with a side of white rice.
