  1. Just made this for lunch – baked in foil – and it was amazing. Next time I’ll try grilling. I’ll be making this more in the future – it was so, so good and easy!

  2. AMAZING! Already making this recipe for the third time today, everyone in the family loves it! I believe it’s so much tastier on the grill!

  3. Fantastic! This is our new favorite salmon recipe. We baked instead of grilled, used a homemade spicy mustard instead of regular dijon, and loved it so much I shared this with everyone I know. BEST SALMON RECIPE EVER!!

  4. Loved this! So easy and lemony, tangy, deliciousness! My new favorite salmon recipe, however, I think I will just cook it directly on the grill and add the sauce right before serving.
