[asian broiled salmon]

Adapted from Barefoot Contessa's Asian Grilled Salmon
This recipe feeds four.  We take enough salmon to feed 2 and halve the marinade.  

1 side fresh salmon, boned but skin on (about 3 pounds)

For the marinade:
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons good soy sauce
6 tablespoons good olive oil
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic

Set oven to broil.  While the oven is heating, lay the salmon skin side down on a cutting board and cut it crosswise into 4 equal pieces. Whisk together the mustard, soy sauce, olive oil, and garlic in a small bowl. Place salmon on something with sides (like a platter), drizzle half of the marinade onto the salmon and allow it to sit for 10 minutes.
Place salmon on a foil covered baking sheet that is ok for the broiler.  Place the salmon skin side up on the foil; discard the marinade the fish was sitting in. Broil for 4 to 5 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish. Turn carefully with a wide spatula and broil for another 4 to 5 minutes. The salmon will be slightly raw in the center, but don't worry; it will keep cooking as it sits.
Remove salmon from the oven and spoon the reserved marinade on top. Cover with foil and allow the fish to rest for 10 minutes. Remove the skin and serve.
