"We love this salmon recipe. A word of caution. This is one case where broiling cannot be swapped for grilling. Sauce caused excessive flare ups. I found out the hard way the 2nd time I made this recipe."

"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."
