Sesame Salmon

This dish I made last night by making use of what I already had in the house. I had bought some fresh filets of Salmon and wanted to do something quick after a LONG day. After looking in the cabinet for ingredients to use, I asked my hubs if he would rather have almond crusted salmon or sesame salmon. He chose sesame. So here you go - a quick and flavor-packed healthy salmon dinner. Hope you enjoy!

2 filets of salmon, skin and bones removed
2 tablespoons of sesame oil
1 tablespoon of dijon mustard
1 tablespoon of agave nectar
1 tablespoons of black sesame seeds plus more for sprinkling on top
1 teaspoon of lemon

Preheat your oven to broil. In a small mixing bowl wisk together the sesame oil, dijon mustard, agave nectar, sesame seeds and lemon. Wisk until smooth.Season your salmon filets with salt and pepper on each side. Place salmon in a baking dish or a non-stick rimmed cookie sheet. Using a pastry brush or spoon, brush (or spoon) the mixture over each side of both filets. Then sprinkle additional sesame seeds on both sides of each filet. They should stick nicely to the salmon. Broil in oven for about 15 minutes or until the salmon is pink and flakes off easily with a fork.
