Since he was up in Vancouver for business the days prior to the weekend, I was left with the duty to finish up the veggies that were left in the fridge - namely, green beans. It was a Thursday evening after a long day at work and I contemplated grabbing some Panda takeout for dinner. Then I thought to myself, if I do that, then the green beans will go bad. Since it was one of those times when I didn't want to spend effort making anything, I opted for the tried and true broiled salmon with a simple glaze. It's quick, tasty, and the fish stays completely moist. What's even better is that you can make it with just 5 basic ingredients in less than 10 minutes!

1. Preheat broiler. Meanwhile, combine first 6 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring well.
2. Place fish on a baking pan coated with cooking spray. Brush half of peach-dijon mixture over fish; broil 6 minutes. Brush fish with remaining mixture; broil for 2 more minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.
