This updated French bistro dish makes a simple dinner any night of the week. You might want to consider doubling the batch and using the remaining salmon in a tossed salad the next day.
1 ¼pounds center-cut salmon fillets, cut into 4 portions
¼ teaspoon salt, or to taste
Freshly ground pepper to taste
¼ cup reduced-fat sour cream
2 tablespoons stone-ground mustard
2 teaspoons lemon juice
Preheat broiler. Line a broiler pan or baking sheet with foil, then coat it with cooking spray.
Place salmon pieces, skin-side down, on the prepared pan. Season with salt and pepper. Combine sour cream, mustard and lemon juice in a small bowl. Spread evenly over the salmon.
Broil the salmon 5 inches from the heat source until it is opaque in the center, 10 to 12 minutes. Serve with lemon wedges. Makes 4 servings.
