I love salmon! I became involved in the Zaard World Tour 2005 and this recipe was found on a Scandinavian Cooking site. It is easy to prepare and makes an elegant dinner for 2.

Very good and easy to make. Next time, I think I would use less mustard, just for our taste preference. Very nice flavor with the salmon. Made for the Vivacious Violets for ZWT7.

Excellent!!! I made this as directed, apart from adding a little more chili to the mix. I loved the sweet yet tangy taste of the honey and lemon followed by the little kick given by the chili. I served ours over a corn, red pepper and avocado salad. We loved the apples cooked in the butter and rosemary to finish off this dish. I also poured a little of the butter mix over the salmon and apples as well. I only used 2 apples as I thought 4 was a little excessive for only 2 of us. This was a very light and delicious summer time meal. Cheers Paula for a yummy dinner.

Absolutely wonderful and so easy too! I made as directed except I skipped the chili powder and used 1 1/2 pounds fish. Thanks for sharing this keeper which we will be having often!
