"We really enjoyed this salmon recipe. I used spicy brown mustard because I didn't have any Dijon mustard."

"Good solid recipe. Always looking for ways to spruce up salmon which gets so dull, but it's so affordable!"

"Excellent recipe. I used grainy mustard. I also added 1tsp of maple syrup. I served a spinach salad with a raspberry dressing. Very nice. Janet"

"Used spicy brown mustard instead of Dijon because that is what I had on hand and only had about 1/3 teaspoon of dill. I still really enjoyed it and would like to make it again with the full amount of dill."
