This was a great change to the usual flavor of salmon! We actually baked the salmon at 350 for 25 minutes, just because we have this tiny propane grill. Ick. But it was so easy to make, and the flavor.... *kisses her fingers* perfecto! Thanks much for a new twist to an old favorite for my family!
wonderful flavour, we loved it! very easy to put together and cooked it on my grill, it took only 3 minutes to cook! We loved the combination of flavours and I will be making it again. Thanks for posting.
I would do this recipe again, but leave out the cinnamon. My DD said that with the cinnamon added, it tasted like "breakfast food"
