Salmon with mustard-herb crust

And yet another Weight Watchers recipe. This one was also surprising, because it didn't taste like diet food at all.

3 Tbsp rosemary, leaves, fresh, chopped
3 Tbsp thyme, fresh, leaves, fresh, stemmed
1 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
2 spray(s) cooking spray
1 1/4 pound(s) salmon fillet(s), with or without skin, Atlantic, skinless (four 5-ounce pieces)
4 Tbsp Dijon Mustard, regular or grainy-variety

Turn on the broiler and get it nice and hot.
Mix the rosemary, thyme and pepper in a small bowl.
Spray the bottom of the fish fillets with nonstick spray.
Spread 1 tablespoon mustard on the top of each fillet. Sprinkle about 1 1/2 tablespoons of the herb mixture on top of each.
Place herb side up on the grate directly over the heat. Cover the grill and cook until the fish flakes when gently scraped with a fork, about 12 minutes. Transfer to plates with a wide spatula. Yields 1 fillet per serving.

(4 Servings, 7 WW Points per serving)

this was super-delicious and VERY fast tonight. Thanks for the recipe!
Ate with steamed fresh peas, garlic & olive oil-rubbed toast and a salad.
