My mom and I made this tonight for dinner. It was easy and quick to make. The only thing you need to budget time for is getting the skin off the salmon, if your grocery doesn't sell it pre-skinned. We had it for dinner, and it easily fed four. Note: the dill is NOT optional. I don't know how it does it, but cooking the fish on top of the dill absorbed the flavor up into the fish to mix with the mustard, and I don't think it would have been NEARLY as good if we'd skipped the dill, which we almost did.
