Baked Salmon

I love salmon and this recipe that I found is wonderful, simple and cooks the fish perfectly.

3/4 cup dry white wine (I usually use a Chardonnay, which pairs great with this dish)
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon of Old Bay Seasoning
1/4 cup packed golden brown sugar
1/3 cup spicy brown mustard

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit On a cookie sheet, add a piece of foil and place salmon on top of foil.  Sprinkle salmon with pepper.   Add wine, butter and seasoning to a small saucepan and cook until mixture boils, cook for 2 minutes.  Pour liquid over salmon and place in center of oven.  Cook for 14 minutes until fish is opaque.  Mix brown sugar and mustard together.  Remove from oven.  Preheat broiler to high.  Spread mustard mixture onto top of salmon and put into oven for about 3 minutes until top is brown and bubbling. 

I added some cooked quinoa to go along with this dish. 

1-1/2 cups water
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 cup quinoa

Add water and broth to a pot, bring to boil.  Add quinoa, cover, lower heat to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes until all water has been absorbed.

A little cooked spinach (frozen) and a side salad rounded out this meal.
