Marmalade Dijon Salmon

After getting back in to town from a fantastic weekend in Key West, I still had seafood on the brain! So I was thrilled to see that Coho Salmon was on sale at the store this week.

This glaze was super tasty and super easy! I think it would be a great marinade for pork tenderloin too with the citrus and dijon flavors! I loved that this meal came together in no time...and that the leftovers were awesome over mixed greens as a salad the next day!

1. Preheat broiler.

2. Combine first 6 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring well.

3. Place fish on a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Brush half of marmalade mixture over fish; broil 6 minutes.

** We had this salmon with green beans and GRILLED baked potatoes...what a time saver! Simply microwave the potatoes on high for 8 minutes, then transfer to the oiled rack of a medium high heated grill for 10-15 minutes.
