I had some salmon fillets in the freezer and wanted to grill them. I found this recipe and just had to try it. We thoroughly enjoyed this! I didn't have fresh green onions and fresh chives, so I substituted some dried chives. It was still very good. Thanks for a keeper, Kittencal!

I enjoyed the flavor of the sauce with the salmon. This is the first time I have used whiskey in cooking and I can see why it's popular. Thanks Kitten!
