    I made this for my fiance and another couple for a small dinner get together. WOW!! The sauce was so easy and reminded us a bit of hollandaise sauce and was wonderful. I will absolutely make it again. (I added a tad more honey than the recipe called for.) Thank you for sharing Karena  -  29 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. Pretty good. I omitted the lemon juice.  -  29 Sep 2008


    I thought this was an excellent and quick way to prepare salmon. I cut the dill mustard sauce in half as it made plenty to cover the fish.  -  29 Sep 2008
