Sweet and Spicy Glazed Salmon for Mommy and Daddy

Ok this is the MOST delicious salmon I have ever had in my life. Every bite from start to finish was so flavorful. I had to stop a few times during dinner to have a moment with this delicious dish. I found this recipe in the most recent issue of Simple & Delicious magazine and made this for myself and my husband for our at home date night the other night. This is so easy to make. Takes about 30 minutes including prep time! I would not recommend serving this to your little one because it has cayenne pepper in it. You could make it without the pepper if you want to serve it to the whole family.

Here's what you need for 4 servings:
4 Salmon fillets
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tbsp stoneground mustard or dijon mustard
2 tsp dill
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Preheat oven to 350F. Sprinkle salmon with salt and cayenne (use black pepper if serving to your little one) and set aside. Combine sugar, mustard, oil, and dill in a small bowl (this is your glaze). Spray a baking dish with olive oil cooking spray and place salmon skin side. Brush glaze over fish covering the salmon entirely. Place in oven. Bake salmon 10 minutes for every inch of thickness. I baked ours for  20 minutes. Serve and enjoy!

I served this with sauteed brussels sprouts with pancetta.

10-12 brussels sprouts halved
1/2 cup diced pancetta
1 tblsp italian seasoning
1 tblsp olive oil
1 garlic clove minced

Spray a large skillet with olive oil cooking spray and place over med high heat.  Add minced garlic, and brussels sprouts and season with salt and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil. Add pancetta and Italian seasoning. Saute for 15 or so minutes until tender.
