I created this for wild salmon fillets from Trader Joe's; I think the sweet citrusy sauce is to die for, yet the grilled bourbon-marinated salmon tastes great on its own, too. Use a good-quality bourbon here; I use Knob Creek or Maker's Mark. And I think the flavor is contingent on wild salmon; the farm-raised just doesn't have "that flavor". Prep time includes marinating.
