Ingredients

  • 1 to 1-1/4 lbs salmon fillets (about 3/4-inch thick), skin removed
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon-style mustard
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F, line a shallow baking pan with foil and coat with nonstick spray.
  2. Lightly season the salmon on both sides with salt and pepper, then arrange in a single layer on the prepared pan.
