Maple~Dijon Broiled Salmon Fillets


February is National Heart Month and what better way to celebrate than with a fast, tasty and easy salmon recipe.  Salmon is one of those nutritional marvels.  Considered both a brain food and a heart-healthy food, it provides heart beneficial omega 3s, high quality protein, loads of vitamins(B12, B6 and that all important vitamin D) as well as being an excellent source of minerals(selenium, potassium).  It cooks in no time so it can be a healthy weeknight dinner accompanied by veggies and a starch.  The trick is to not overcook it.  This tasty recipe coats salmon fillets with a simple glaze of shallots, maple syrup and Dijon.  10 minutes under the broiler, and it’s ready!  Fast enough for a weeknight but elegant enough for company too.
