Maple Glazed Salmon

Maple Glazed Salmon is one of my favorites, especially this time of year, when Wegman's gets Sockeye Salmon fresh from Alaska!  This is a great grill recipe, but since I rarely get out to the grill, I've adapted it for indoor use.

4-6 nicely sized salmon fillets (rinsed, patted dry)
Wegman's pan searing flour (I love this stuff- so versatile)
1/3 cup of pure maple syrup (not fake....don't go there)
2 Tablespoons of reduced sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons of Dijon mustard

Dust fillets with pan searing flour.  Season with pepper as desired.  Melt butter (not alot - maybe 1-2 Tablespoons) in an electric skillet till bubbly and just slightly browning.  Add fillets, sear for a few minutes, then turn.  Sear that side, then whisk all other ingredients together and pour over the fillets. Lower heat, cover, and simmer till fish is cooked through.  Baste with sauce.  I served this with a grains side dish with pecans and garlic seasoning, fresh green beans, and salad.  The fresh salmon is SO GOOD!  Enjoy while it is in season. Use a leftover fillet (if there are any) to top a green salad for a delicious lunch the next day.  Add sliced oranges for extra color and a pop of flavor.
