Top Review by Trixyinaz

I'm not a huge fan of bell peppers (they don't like me), but I wanted to try something different over salmon and this sounded great. IT WAS AMAZING!!!! The flavor was incredible - not too sweet. And the recipe was easy. No special skills needed. It does make a lot so be sure to save it and use it later on other foods - lke crackers and cheese. I'm making it again tonight for my mom. She loves red peppers and salmon so I thought this would be perfect for her to try also. EDITED TO ADDED: This was AWESOME over my grilled hot Italian Sauce links. I had sauce left over from the salmon and just had to eat more of it. It was great used as a dipping sauce for my sausage and as a condiment on italian bread with the sausage, peppers and onions on it made into a sandwich. YUMMY!!!!
