Recipe by ChrisMc

A sweet and spicy glaze for salmon - definitely for mustard lovers. The glaze can be made ahead and stored, making it easy to cook the salmon quickly. Prep time is the time to make the glaze

Chris, I would have never thought to put mango and mustard together in a glaze but we thought it was a dynamite taste combination. We are mustard lovers and loved the strong flavor. It is a great accent to the salmon and made a delicious glaze. Thanks for sharing the recipe. This ones definitely a keeper.
