This is an unbelievably delicious and quick salmon recipe. You can play around with the ingredients: add fresh basil leaves instead of the chili or balsamic instead of the lemon juice. The wholegrain mustard is essential. You are guaranteed to love this one! Serve with a green salad, and enjoy!

This was good. I did not pre-heat the oven and put the fish in for 25 min, it was a bit to long, leaving the fish dry. I will make again but start checking around 18-20 min.

I love salmon and added this to my "200 ways to cook salmon" list. The recipe needs to be corrected. As one reviewer noted, 25 min is too long to bake this dish. The cooking time shown in the header is 15 minutes, about right, and the TOTAL is 25, which is what is shown in the instructions as the cooking time.

I love this salmon recipe. But I had to double most of the ingredients since the original recipe was little bland and not spicy enough.
