Broiled Wild Salmon

Yikes!! It's been 4 MONTHS since I last posted. Apologies all around - I think most people have stopped reading since I haven't been posting. Well, it's due to a couple of factors: 60% my laziness, 15% being gone in August on vacation, and 15% stress from working and not cooking lately. But I hope this recipe redeems myself slightly...

About 1 lb Wild Salmon, either one whole piece or cut into equal pieces
2 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp (or less...) soy sauce
2 cloves garlic
2 tsps dijon mustard

1 cookie sheet (or small baking sheet); 1 small bowl; pestle (mortar is optional); aluminium foil to cover the sheet

Prep work: 1) Peel the garlic. 2) Turn the broiler on to "Low"

Cover the sheet with the foil and lay the salmon on it. Put the garlic in the small bowl and using the pestle, gently (but firmly) pound the garlic until it is mashed. Add the sesame oil, dijon, and soy sauce and mix together. You may want to add less soy sauce and add as you taste, as it can be salty. Reserve some of the mixture, and spoon the marinade onto the fish and spread it to cover the surface. Place the rack in the oven about 4 inches from the broiler and place the pan so that the salmon is directly underneath the flames. Broil for approximately 7 minutes or until the salmon flakes but is still moist.You can spoon some of the reserve marinade on the salmon, or leave it as a dipping sauce.
