This made a glistening glaze for our slab of fresh Sockeye. The only downside is that the marinade was so spectacular that we would have hoped for its flavors to show up more on the finished product. As it was, fantastic.
Absolutely delish! What a fantastic flavor this marinade imparts to the salmon and we loved the sauce as well. We are not big fish eaters, but we do love a great grilled salmon and this dish did not disappoint. My DD and her DH love salmon so I plan to make this dish for them very soon and of course, I plan to share the recipe as well. : )
Spectacular results with very little effort. I marinated the salmon for 24 hours, as I made this during the week. DH cooked the salmon on the barbeque, which gave us a crusty outside & very moist, succulent flesh. Lesson learned: don't use lite cream cheese, as it's part cottage cheese & I ended up with little white specks through the sauce - we didn't care, as it tasted soooo good. Made for Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #11 Dec 2007. Thanks twissis for sharing this wonderful recipe that I'm sure we'll eat time & time again.
This is a very nice marinade. I adore salmon and have made it very many different ways in the last few months (love to grill it) and this was a nice smokey version. I used the honey too - worked out quite nicely!
Please note, MP, a non-fish eater prepared this recipe. The marinade was OUTSTANDING! Glad I saw your note about the honey - that really brings it home. That said, on to the fish. Considering the 105º outside temp, I opted for indoor grilling of the big, red thing that I don't even like to touch. Said red object was flaky & tender after 6 minutes on a contact grill. I sampled a bite just for you & Jer ate the rest of it, drizzled with sauce & a chunk of cream cheese on the side. Isn't he an odd little guy ? LU
