Salmon with Maple Mustard Sauce

This is a rendition of a recipe I found in Cooking Light. The first time I made it was on a family fishing trip to Homer, AK. So with freshly caught silver salmon I made this in our tiny galley kitchen of our motorhome, naturally my family was dubious, thankfully they ended up loving it.

(6- to 7-oz) pieces salmon fillets (1 1/4 inches thick), skinned

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

3 tablespoons Dijon mustard

4 tablespoons pure maple syrup

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

1/4 cup chopped scallion greens

Pat salmon dry and season with salt and pepper.

Whisk together remaining ingredients pour over salmon and marinate salmon for about 20 minutes.

Heat oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium high heat, then sauté salmon starting with skinned sides up and turning over once, pour remaining sauce over salmon. cook until just through, 5 to 8 minutes per serving.

Makes 4 servings.
