This was fantastic! I didn't have fresh basil on hand so just used dried, but I'm sure it'd be that much more amazing with the fresh. I added lots of green onions as well. This was a nice change of pace from the usual salmon dishes we make. Thanks for a delicious recipe!

Excellent -- very moist. Since I wasn't sure how much salt to use, I left it out. Next time I will add 1/4 t. salt to the marinade. We cooked this on the grill and it turned out great.

Excellent! Very fresh and moist. A good mix of the sweetness of the honey and tanginess of the mustard and basil. I mixed dijon mustard with the honey. Tasted great. Thanks.

I loved this! Ended up marinating for about two hours instead of one. I also used filet instead of steaks. Mine took a little longer to cook, about 20 mins, but the flavor was amazing and the sauce was divine! My codiners loved it as well. Great way to give salmon a fresh taste for summer instead of my regular bourbon and brown sugar.

Delicious! This is definitely one of the top two salmon recipes I've tried on Food.com. It's relatively healthy and I was able to make it with pantry items I already had in stock. With the extra lemon juice I made it with Garlic Broccoli Spears. http://www.food.com/recipe/garlic-broccoli-spears-61830

Like everybody else I didn't have honey dijon so I mixed a little honey with my dijon using a 1/2 tsp of honey and filling the rest of the tbsp. with the dijon, as suggested by one of the other reviewers.

I also used dried basil which the hubby really liked but I definitely will make this with fresh basil again to see how it compares.

This was for a special holiday meal for my husband and this recipe delivered! Thanks Barb for sharing.

This was delicious! I made it as written and it worked out great. The only difference was that it took approximately 20 minutes for my salmon to be done (the suggested target temperature for salmon is 150 degrees F).
I served it with Quinoa and green beans. Thanks for this recipe, I will surely make it again!

This was quite good, I am always looking for different ways to prepare salmon, as we have it once a week and this recipe did just that - provided a nice, different way to prepare salmon. I felt the honey mustard complimented the salmon nicely.
