Salmon is jam-packed with protein and essential vitamins, and-not to mention-absolutely delicious! Spice it up with a light herbed mustard sauce that gives flavor without all the calories. Add a green vegetable as a side. Pair with a dry chardonnay or, to be bolder, a sweet red dolcetto wine.

2 garlic cloves
¾ teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
¾ teaspoon finely chopped fresh thyme leaves
1 tablespoon dry white wine
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
Nonstick cooking spray
6 salmon fillets, rinsed and pat dry with paper towel
Salt and black pepper
6 lemon wedges (or as needed)
Using a mini food processor, combine 1 tablespoon of whole-grain mustard, Dijon mustard, garlic, rosemary, thyme, wine, and oil. Mix mustard sauce until combined, or about 30 seconds. Add remaining 1 tablespoon of whole-grain mustard to sauce. Stir until combined.
Preheat broiler. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with nonstick spray. Arrange the six salmon fillets on the baking sheet and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Broil for 2 minutes. Spoon mustard sauce over fillets. Continue broiling for about 5 minutes or until fillets are golden brown.
Serve with lemon wedges.
