Salmon and Mustard Dill

         1½ lbs Salmon Fillet, de-boned and skinned, cut into 4
         ¼ cup Chicken Broth
         2 cloves Garlic, pressed
         3 tbsp freshly squeezed Lemon juice
         1 tsp fresh Dill, chopped
         1 tsp Honey
         Salt & Pepper to taste

    First prepare all of the ingredients so that they are ready for cooking as
    you need them.

    Pre-heat a large skillet on medium high heat for roughly 2 minutes. While
    the skillet is heating up, rub 1 tbsp of lemon juice onto the salmon. Add
    enough salt and pepper for seasoning and taste.

    When the skillet is hot and ready for the salmon, place the salmon
    skinned side facing upwards. You will need to cook the salmon for about
    2 to 3 minutes.

    When one side of the salmon has been cooked turn the salmon over and
    let the cooking continue for another 2 to 3 minutes so that the other side
    of the salmon gets cooked.

    From the beginning of the cooking process until you remove the salmon
    onto a plate you have no need of oil or any liquid to cook the salmon.  

    Now when the salmon has been removed from the pan wipe the pan
    with a paper towel in order to remove any burnt salmon pieces and
    excess oil from the salmon.

    Once the pan has been cleared of any brunt pieces and oil, return the
    pan to the stove. You can now prepare the mustard dill sauce in the
    large skillet.

    Put the pressed garlic in the hot pan and stir for about ½ a minute. Next
    combine the mustard, chicken broth, the 2 tbsp of fresh lemon juice,
    honey, salt and pepper. Whisk these sauce ingredients well.

    Cook the sauce mixture on high heat. This will help to reduce the sauce
    amount slightly. When the sauce is nearly done add the dill. Now pour
    over the salmon and serve.
