Salmon with mustard dill sauce

I love salmon. It's healthy, easy to make, cooks up fast, and you can prepare it a million different ways (at least). Pair up a piece of salmon with some steamed vegetables to make the perfect mid-week meal.

Mustard Dill Sauce
(adapted from a chow life)

1/2 cup course-ground mustard
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup olive oil
4 teaspoons sugar
1/2 cup chopped, fresh dill

Mix all ingredients and allow flavors to mingle at least an hour. In the meantime, I broiled the salmon after seasoning with salt and pepper.

**This sauce was very tasty, but next time, I'll add some lemon zest and replace the heavy cream with yogurt to make it a bit lighter. Also, this makes a lot of sauce - if you are making a one pound piece of salmon, you can reduce this by at least half.
