Salmon with a brown sugar & mustard glaze

At the end of the season of our share purchasing of Alaskan salmon, all the purchasers were invited to a very nice local restaurant, En Season, where the chef demonstrated a few different ways of cooking salmon and then we all got to eat it--a fun evening.  We also got a few recipes, one of which I tried  tonight and really liked.  I thought the sauce might overpower the taste of the salmon, but not at all.  Here's my slightly adapted version:

(scale the amount of sauce up or down for more or less fish)

1-1/2 lb. salmon fillets
1 T. brown sugar
1/2 T. honey
1 T. butter
2 T. Dijon mustard
1 T. soy sauce
1 T. olive oil
2 t. grated fresh ginger

Preheat oven to 375.  Melt the sugar, honey, and butter in a small sauté pan over medium heat.  Remove from the heat and whisk in the mustard, soy sauce, oil, and ginger.  Let cool a bit.  Put salmon on baking tray skin side down.  Spoon the glaze over the salmon and bake (skin side down) until done, between 10 and 20 minutes or so, depending on thickness of the fillet.  Salmon can also be grilled, if you prefer.
