Spiced Salmon with Mustard Sauce

    Fits my definition of a favorite recipe -- easy and fast enough for a weeknight but good enough to serve for company. I discovered too late that I was out of honey so I substituted maple syrup instead. That worked great to provide a little sweetness to balance the mustard and spices. I was pleased with the suggestion to use spinach and brown rice for the side dishes, although I was tempted to use asparagus for the vegetable which I'm sure would have been equally good. A very easy, tasty, and healthy meal.

    I followed the instructions exactly--I think I may cut the mustard a little next time. It seemed a little too overpowering. Otherwise, this recipe is okay.

    Our family really loves this recipe. It's a regular at our house - quick and easy. The whole grain mustard is good, but I think the recipe would also do well with ground mustard - prepared mustard you might need to reduce the amount a bit, but I have not tried that. (My daughter doesn't care for salmon too much, but actually enjoyed it with this topping!)

    I love this recipe! I've made it about four times now and it doesn't get old. My friends love, my family loves it -- my 10 year old little sister went crazy over this recipe and she's the pickiest eater I've ever met. Even if you don't like fish, you have to try this!

    Fast and easy to prepare. Even the kids enjoyed the meal.

    Mixed this "rub" as directed and slathered it on a 1-lb salmon fillet. Before broiling, I lightly coated the fish with pepper. Very flavorful.

    Super Fast! I served this with brown rice and a fresh garden salad. Yummy.

    I made this last night, and it was pretty good. Super easy and had all the ingredients on hand, except red pepper, which I substituted with cayenne. I think I put a little too much of that in, because it was just a bit too spicy for me (though not for my husband). Might make again, but have quite a few other simple recipes like these that I like better, like the Brown Sugar and Mustard Salmon that Cooking Light has.
