This recipe is delicious. To reply to TMCLARTY, who said, "I thought the taste of this was rather odd... it tasted way too tangy/mustardy. I didn't have any honey, so I used honey dijon mustard... but I probably wouldn't make it again. Sorry." All I can say is, please do NOT review recipes if you do not follow the recipe. This isn't fair. If you didn't use any honey and substituted more mustard in place of it, of course it tasted odd and way too mustardy. You didn't follow the recipe. Shame on you for leaving a bad review when you didn't use the correct ingredients called for in the recipe! Please, from now on, don't leave a review unless you followed the recipe.


After reading all the rave reviews on this dish I decided to make it for my husband's birthday. Even though it looked amazing this is possibly the WORST recipe I have ever used for salmon. Don't bother wasting your ingredients. It is bland bland bland. I used an expensive salmon fillet which was more or less wasted and great pecans that could have been put to better use. Next time I will stick to my tried and tested recipe: a 1/4 cup white wine, some freshly squeezed lemon juice, salmon steaks or fillets, 1 tsp dried basil and 1 tsp dried oregano and freshly minced garlic, salt & pepper to taste. Cover and poach it for about 15 minutes top with a splash of extra virgin olive oil and it's the tastiest salmon you'll ever eat.


Both my husband and myself absolutely love this recipe. We have found that it works best if you skin the salmon and then coat all sides of it, it augments the flavor all around. Also, the honey-mustard-butter coating makes A LOT. You can generally halve it without too much trouble.
