This was easy to make, but I didn't care for the dijon mustard/ maple syrup flavor.

My husband liked it, but I thought there was too much mustard flavor.

I usually grill salmon outside, but I didn't have time, so I thought I'd try a stovetop recipe. I loved the sauce; so did my son who can't stand mustard. The salmon was okay. It was tough on the outside, but flaky and tender inside. The recipe needs a little work, I think. At what temperature was I supposed to panfry the salmon at? I had no idea.
