The flavor of the recipe is perfect, exactly like the sauce at TGIF. The only change I made was to mix 2 teaspoons of cornstarch with about 1/4 cup cold water and then add to the sauce, after it had boiled and reduced for about 40 minutes. I brought the mixture back to a boil, stirred, and it thickened nicely. I found that without the cornstarch the sauce was simply boiling and reducing without thickening. We brushed this on salmon fillets, broiled each side for six minutes on low, and poured a little of the sauce on the fish before serving - excellent!
