Asian Salmon

1 side salmon fillet cut in steaks (I got 5 steaks out of it)

2 T. spicy brown mustard
3 T. soy sauce
6 T. Olive oil
1/2 t. garlic
1/4 t. grated ginger
2-4 drops sesame oil

Mix marinade and pour half over salmon. Let sit in marinade 10-20 min. Put some foil on cookie sheet, spray with cooking spry and lay salmon on foil skin side down. Broil for 10 min in oven (this is what I did since we don't have a grill) or grill on grill for 4-5 min per/side.
Once out of oven or grill, pour remaining sauce over fish and let sit for a few min. then serve.
