I can't stand salmon. I only bought it today after a Registered Dietician told me today that I MUST eat it. I begrudgingly found this recipe and it was THEE BEST SALMON RECIPE EVER!! My husband shares in my ongoing disdain of salmon and he ate what I couldn't finish. It is a delicious marinade and a mustard, olive oil dip on the side was a bonus but not necessary especially with the grilled flavor. Make this and you will be glad you did- I am smiling from ear to ear!! Thanks :)

Excellent recipe, salmon was moist and the flavours were great. I baked in tin foil and used fillets. Thanks for sharing.
