This recipe officially turned me into the newest salmon lover!! I am almost embarrassed to say, but we have never cooked salmon at home. My son-in-law just came home from Iraq and I was cooking a special dinner for his birthday. When my daughter told me that salmon was his favorite I nearly had a heart attack. I have never been one to cower in the kitchen, and for this special occasion for our soldier home from Iraq I wasn't backing down now. I picked your recipe because of it's simplicity and the ingredients that I knew would be a hit at our table. Before we sat down to eat I prematurely apologized to my son-in-law for using his occasion as our 1st time salmon attempt, but I could have saved myself the breathe. It was absolutely delicious!! We were just blown away at the flavor the marinade and the grill combined with the fresh salmon produced. He loved it and repeatedly complimented our first try at his favorite dish. We are sold...not only on salmon at home from now on, but on this GREAT recipe!! :)

This salmon tastes awesome!! My sister recommended we try this recipe because it was amazing, so we did!! I have never cooked nor eaten salmon so I wasn't expecting much, but my husband (who isn't a huge fan of salmon) and I both thought it was great and are looking forward to making it again!! Not only did it taste great it was easy to make, which is another plus in my book!! Thanks.

Easy to mix up, great marinade for salmon. Not too overpowering, but adds just the right touch to grilled salmon.

Yum!!! Made this just as stated using Emeril's Essence as the cajun seasoning. Not too hot, but good depth of seasoning. Will repeat often. Hubby said he really liked it too--he usually complains about fish for dinner.

This had excellent flavor. I had never had salmon before and we finally decided to try it. My husband didn't care for the salmon it was too fishy tasting for him, but he liked the flavor of the seasoning. We used creole seasoning, instead of the cajun seasoning as we didn't have any. Excellent recipe.

Awesome recipe. I left in marinade for a couple of hours, then we cooked on a cedar plank on the grill. Wonderful!

This is delicious! I love a good salmon recipe. This is as good as the salmon I get in restaurants. I was very careful not to overcook it on the grill and managed to get some of the marinade to stick to it so it's nice and garlicky. I served this with Sour Cream Rice (Cold) and a green salad. Thanks for posting.

These were great. My husband and I are not big fish fans, but we took a shot for something different. The tang of the cajun seasoning overcompensated for the fish flavor. Everyone loved it. Thanks

Another great recipe for the cookbook. Used the cajun seasoning from ChrisMc (Cajun Seasoning)and it worked perfectly. Sent the recipe to my daughter in Australia, and her Aussie hubby said it was the best BBQ fish he ever had.
