Broiled Salmon with maple cream sauce.

Super Yummy Broiled Salmon- this is THE salmon to try if you are not sure about salmon
This is from my Eat Shrink and be Merry cookbook, which I ADORE. For the most part, the recipes in it have been really good, and easy to prepare.

6 boneless, skinless salmon fillets (about 6 oz each)
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste, plus 1/4 tsp each for sauce
1/3 cup light sour cream
2 Tablespoons pure maple syrup
1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 Tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 Tablespoon minced fresh dill
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest

Pre-heat broiler. Sprinkle salmon fillets lightly on both sides with salt and pepper
Place salmon on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Broil 4-6 inches from heat source for about 4 minutes per side, or until fish flakes easily, but is just slightly pink in the center.
While fish is cooking, prepare sauce. In small bowl, whisk together sour cream, maple syrup, mustard, lemon juice, dill, lemon zest, salt and pepper.
Remove salmon from oven, and drizzle with sauce. Serve immediately

**note-I warm the sauce up in the microwave a little bit because I can't get it on the table fast enough to still be warm. Also, I double the sauce and serve it on rice.
