Grilled Salmon with Dijon Mustard Barbecue Glaze

Sweet and tangy, this honey dijon barbecue sauce recipe is perfect when you feel like a tasty break from the usual tomato-based barbecue sauce recipes.  This dijon BBQ sauce can be used as a pre-grilling marinade on chicken wings but it would taste great on grilled chicken breasts as well.
