salmon with brown sugar and mustard glaze... 20 minutes

the goods:

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 large shallot, minced
1/4 cup red-wine vinegar
1/4 cup whole-grain mustard
1/4 cup packed dark-brown sugar
1 side salmon, skin removed, cut into fillets
1 lemon, cut into wedges, for serving

Heat broiler, with rack in top position. In a small saucepan, heat oil over medium-high. Add shallot and cook, stirring often until softened, 3 minutes. Add vinegar and cook until slightly evaporated, 1 minute. Add mustard and brown sugar; stir until warm and combined, 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper and remove from heat. Place salmon on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Transfer 1/2 cup glaze to a small dish and brush on top of salmon. Broil salmon until glaze is bubbling and fish is opaque throughout, 5 to 10 minutes, depending on thickness; brush remaining glaze over fillets.

Serve with lemon wedges.
