    Used Dijon Mustard for a little flavor. Family enjoyed.

    I can't believe how good this was for such a simple, easy recipe! I served it over rice and it was a hit.

    I tweaked this recipe just a little by adding tarragon & black pepper. Instead of brushing things on separately, I mixed all the ingredients together prior & poured it evenly over the Salmon. Still turned out beautifully w/much flavor. Marinating overnight will be the 2nd attempt. The 1st was still amazing.

    This was quick, as most salmon recipes are. Good flavor but I have other recipes I prefer over this one.

    YOU GOTTA TRY THIS!!!! It was quick and easy! I accidentally mixed the lemon juice, yellow mustard and brown sugar together in a small bowl before I read the recipe, but it was PHENOMENAL!!! I will do it again next time. I then made aluminum foil "boats" to put each salmon in, so that the sauce that I poured on top of it will stay on the salmon and and won't burn in the baking pan. Delicious and SO EASY! Thank you!!!!

    Delicious and quick. Cook at least 15 minutes to insure flakey and cooked through.

    This is sooooo good even with my mistakes....I was on the phone when making the glaze and mixed all ingredients together- realizing the mistake I made I decided to coat the salmon with the sauce and my oh my it was outstanding! Will make this again and again and again. Sides: lemon-pepper asparagus, (baked in the oven while baking the salmon) acorn squash and only because I had it leftover spanish rice and what a great meal. Thanks for the recipe it is indeed something special.
