Honey Dijon Salmon

This recipe came off of the package of frozen wild salmon I got from Trader Joe's. It was really simple and delicious.

1 lb salmon, fresh or thawed
2 TB coconut or olive oil
2 TB butter
2 TB dijon mustard, with seeds
pepper to taste
1 TB honey
2 TB water

Heat a large skillet with the oil and butter. When butter is melted, add mustard and stir 1-2 minutes. Add fish to the hot pan and sprinkle with pepper. Cook for 3 minutes per side to brown, turning once. Turn a second time and drizzle honey all around the pan and on the fish. Cover the pan and cook until the fish is cooked but not overdone - probably about 2 more minutes. Remove the salmon from the pan and add the water. Turn pan to high and deglaze, stirring, until the sauce reduces by half or thickens to your taste. Pour pan contents over salmon and serve.
