I love salmon, but my husband doesn't. So I combined flavors I knew he liked to create this grilled recipe, and now it's the only salmon he will eat. It's so easy and only requires a handful of ingredients. —Nicole Clayton, Prescott, Arizona

"My husband and I love this recipe. He told his mom about it, she fixed it, and my father-in-law that doesn't really care for salmon liked it."

"My family enjoyed this salmon (even my 3 year old). I did not drizzle the remaining marinade over the fish after grilling and it was still very flavorful. Will definately make again! Thanks!"

"This was delicious, but it's hard to tell how much of that was due to the marinade and how much was thanks to the grilling and the high quality salmon in general. But we loved it and plan to use it in the future. The ingredients are all simple things we have on hand, which is nice. My kids loved it too, by the way."

"We kicked this up with a chile spice blend before putting on the grill. Really liked the soy sauce & mustard subtle flavors."
