    Next time I would add more brown sugar to the paste for a little bit sweeter taste it took a lot longer to cook than the recipe called for it was okay but likely won’t make this recipe again

    I thought this would be hot because of all the chili powder but it was just right. So delicious!

    Delicious, I listened to the reviews and only used 1tbs of the spicy stuff in the paste!

    Honestly it was ok. Didn’t rly look like the photos and the fish was crispy at the top. Maybe i did something but chili powder was a lot so maybe put less mustard sauce on it. Not bad and I ate it but I wouldn’t try again

    Absolutely loved it! I followed the reviews of others and toned down the spicy stuff (chilly and paprika) and instead of salt I went with lemon pepper directly on the salmon. Then I added all the ingredients in a bowl and poured it over the fish. It was delicious. Served with vegetable and fried plantains.

    too much salt in the mustard mixture, also don’t need to put that much on the fish

    I used molasses & honey instead of maple syrup and spicy brown mustard instead of dijon mustard. I also mixed all the ingredients at once and spread it over the fish before baking it, instead of drizzling the syrup over it before broiling. It was so moist and flavorful! Amazing

    My paste wasn’t as thick and it didn’t really work in the oven too well so I stuck it in my air fryer and it turned out pretty yummy

    Did not like the mustard paste taste, took much to cook than the recipe called for, don't recommend, steer clear big tuna, head for open waters

    My husband said, that did not taste like fish. He said it was a fun departure from the normal salmon dish.

    Pretty tasty, could’ve been more crispy but that might’ve been my mistake. Overall satisfied

    It was good - salmon was cooked perfectly. However, the chili powder was overwhelming so I’d cut back on that. Otherwise, pretty good

    Wow - has to be one of the best Salmon recipes we’ve tried (and we’ve tried quite a few). Very very moist & tender, and super flavourful. We coated both sides if the fillet. Awesome.

    Wow! This was so easy and amazing! I served it with roasted sweet potatoes with a little bit of chipotle pepper and sauteed spinach.

    Very good recipe and directions. I made a slightly lighter coating than the recipe that worked well! I needed to leave the salmon under the grill for a lot longer than three minutes. It was very moist and had great reviews from my dinner guests

    It’s very rare I make something that I’m proud of- but man- I’m so proud of this it’s delicious!

    This didn’t turn out as desired seasoning list suggests brown sugar, actual recipe page does not have that ingredient listed. Seasonings taste almost like OldBay, which Is rather have used. maple was an okay add, nothing to write home about. Probably won’t make again.

    Had a very strong mustard flavor and couldn’t taste much of the maple. I enjoyed it, but my husband did not. Probably wouldn’t make again.

    A little too much Smokey flavor for me but other than I really it.

    Delicious my husband hates fish but at it because of this receipt and loved it
    The rub was very strong and not in a good way. The fish was delicious (we used steelhead trout) and the maple syrup added good flavor as long as I didn’t get a bite that was covered in the rub. Would definitely use a lot less of the paprika and chili powder if I did the recipe again

    Tasty. Could identify all the ingredients in the flavor.

    Omg It was soooo good, the whole house was trying to sneak into it while our other dishes were still cooking, My husband doesn’t like salmon as he say but he has half of a whole fillet of salmon
