    It is called Honey Mustard Salmon. Did you accidentally omit the honey from the recipe?
    I rated t 5 stars, even though I have’t tried it yet, because it sounds so good.

      Hi Mary Jane! I called this recipe “honey mustard” salmon because the sauce really tastes like honey mustard – even though the sweetness just comes from the sugar. You could definitely sub honey for the sugar if you prefer – it would have negligible impacts on the nutrition facts! This is truly one of my favorites. I’ve been making it for years. I hope you like it!
