Great dish. And so quick! This was a great dish. Tasted fantastic and was easy to prepare. In fact it took me less time to make this (not including time it was sitting in the broiler) than to prepare the quick salad that went with it. Pros: Easy quick tasty healthy Read More

This was easy and kept the salmon moist and flavorful. I added some fresh dill to the sauce and topped right before grilling with some panko bread crumbs. A nice addition and this recipe is a keeper. Sara Colchester VT Read More

So quick and easy! The fish was juicy and tender under its topping and mustard is a good flavor complement for salmon. Our dinner guest asked for the recipe. Tina Bellingham WA Read More

Nice simple recipe--made it tonight and stirred some fresh chopped tarragon into the topping mixture. last time i made it under the broiler it burned really fast so i roasted it at 450-ish on the top rack with potatoes on the bottom and it was perfect. Anonymous Read More

I tried a variation of this recipe: instead of sour cream I used honey and I add a bit of Thyme. I was a big hit! Cristina Edwards CO Read More

This couldn't be easier or more delicious! It was a huge hit and I will make it again and again. I did notice spots of topping starting to burn so I turned off the broiler and left the salmon in the warm oven for the balance of the time. It was perfectly cooked moist and flavorful. I wish I'd made extra for tomorrow's lunch! Read More

This recipe was so easy and good. I just started cooking and this made me seem like a pro lol. The sour cream turns into a creamy paste. I do recommend that if you're not keen of mustard reduce the amount you add. Oh and I placed it in the oven instead of the broiler. Read More

I make this all the time without the sour cream calories. I just sprinkle Chinese five spice on the fish and cover it with Dijon mustard. Then I put it in the broiler (toaster over) for five minutes at 450. It's easier and fabulous. Read More

The salmon recipe is great. However I have made for several years a modified version and find it healthier. I use a tablespoon or two of plain yogurt mixed with the mustard. I also add garlic powder dried dillweed and bake for 20 minutes. A dash of Old Bay can also be added before baking. It is a favorite. Leftovers can be added to a salad for another meal. Read More

Loved it! Didn't have stone ground mustard so I used Dijon. Since it was a single serving I just eyeballed the ingredients. I will take the advice of making more next time so I can have the leftovers over a spinach salad the next day! Read More

Fantastic! This is so good! To make it healthier I replaced the sour cream with plain greek yogurt. Tasted fantastic. My 9 year old son loved it too and said "you should put more of the creamy stuff on next time". I think I will! Read More
