Dijon Salmon Steaks with Spinach + Chickpea Salad

I try to eat salmon at least once a week, but sometimes I get bored of it. I usually season with dill and lemon, but even that classic and delicious combination can get old. I was making dinner the other night when I realized that I wanted to boost the flavor a bit with some Dijon mustard. To my surprise, it was absolutely delicious and now my favorite way to prepare salmon.
