    Would this work well with any other types of fish? Our family are not big salmon fans. Thanks so much!

    • Skinny Ms.  July 10, 2012

      Lisa, It really depends on the fish. Salmon is thicker than most fish so it takes a little longer to cook. I would recommend keeping a close
      eye on it and checking for doneness when it flakes easily with a fork. 🙂

    Can't wait to try this later this week!

    Oh yum, I love salmon and this glazed version sounds so good.

    Is there any substitute for this? I don't eat seafood..

    • SkinnyMs  June 30, 2015

      The honey-dijon mix would work well with a grilled lean chicken breast or roasted veggies served over a bed of brown rice or quinoa, too.

  6. Carol Dean  January 26, 2016

    This is so delicious. The dijon mustard gives it a wonderful flavor. Will make again

  7. Nicole  January 6, 2017

    This was delicious! I will definitely try the honey-dijon mix with other types of fish and probably chicken as well. Would also be great to grill during the summer months.

  8. Amanda  October 23, 2017

    Should this be broiled on low or high?

    • Nichole Furlong  October 23, 2017

      Amanda, I would recommend broiling on low. This might take a little longer but the salmon won’t burn on the top!

  9. mrs  October 23, 2017

    Can you put this in the oven without using the broiler, if so how long and what temp? Thank you.

    • Nichole Furlong  October 24, 2017

      You can cook the salmon at 400 degrees for about 8 minutes each side (16 minutes total) or just until firm and flaky!

  10. Jackie  February 23, 2019

    What would the instructions be if the Salmon is frozen?

    • Nichole Furlong  February 23, 2019

      Hi Jackie, it’s best to thaw the salmon first and then follow the recipe as directed.
