Much like chicken breasts, salmon fillets can be treated like culinary blank canvases, ready for whatever marinade or sauce you want to prepare or serve with them. And since they cook quickly — most in mere minutes — they're a go-to dinner on even the busiest of weeknights. In this week's Most Popular Pin of the Week, tangy Dijon mustard and sweet maple syrup combine in a fast-fix recipe to create a bold topping for Food Network Kitchen's good-for-you salmon. Just smear the mixture atop the fish, then bake it for a few minutes, and finish with fragrant cilantro for a fresh finish.
