Expert Tips

To broil salmon, place skin side up on broiler pan; do not spread with mustard mixture. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times above as a guide, turning once halfway through broiling and spreading with mustard mixture.

To reduce the fat in each serving of this recipe by about 7 grams, use fat-free mayonnaise.

This recipe calls for preparing a serving sauce with part of the seasoning mixture used for basting food on the grill. Separate the portion for the sauce before brushing the rest on raw food. This ensures that bacteria from uncooked meat or fish will not contaminate the uncooked serving sauce.
