This recipe was created by my Grandfather about 30 years ago. It was originally designed to cook 10 0lbs of salmon but i have shortened the recipe to only make 1 lb. It is a recipe with many flavors. The edges of salmon are very sweet in nature. As you work your way further in towards the center of the salmon it becomes a much milder flavor.

Wowser, put this on a silver salmon fillet and it is absolutely great. Thank to Leferro and to Grandpa.

Both my husband and I really enjoyed this. And I am not really a big salmon fan! I cut the butter to two tablespoons and only used two tablespoons of brown sugar. Those amounts worked great for us. The cooking instructions were not very complete. I cooked the salmon for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Delicious. Your grandpa had the right idea!
