My husband is still talking about this salmon - the morning after our dinner. It's safe to say that I'm tucking this recipe into my best-of-the-best file. It's absolutely delicious! I skipped the dill, but otherwise kept the recipe the same (using the Dijon option). The flavors are absolutely wonderful. I served the salmon and sauce over brown rice. Yum.

So good! I made this as directed but had to cook mine a little longer that stated. Very simple and flavorful. Thanks for sharing, Alli. Made for ZWT9.
I made this exactly as posted, using one 1.5-lb. piece of salmon fillet instead of individual ones. I was surprised how the brown sugar rub actually liquefied in the refrigerator and permeated the fish, which intensified the flavor. I will definitely make this again. Made by a Tasty Tester for ZWT9.
