I make salmon, so often, it is easy to confuse my recipes. We love salmon so I admit, it is hard for us to consider almost any salmon recipe, a failure. Some are not particularly good looking but tasty, they are. This one, my guests also loved, so it is probably a winning recipe.
It originated from Baked Dijon Salmon from allrecipes.com. I have been, recently, making lots of salmon with soy or Teriyaki sauce and as much as I love that, I wanted a real change. Honey and Mustard was the way to go. To me, a touch of sweetness is important for salmon. You can use brown sugar or agave, instead of the honey, if that is your choice. The idea is to have some sweetness.
