This updated French bistro dish makes a simple dinner any night of the week. You might want to consider doubling the batch and using the remaining salmon in a tossed salad the next day.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Loved it! Didn't have stone ground mustard, so I used Dijon. Since it was a single serving, I just eyeballed the ingredients. I will take the advice of making more next time so I can have the leftovers over a spinach salad the next day! "
