"ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS" great blend of simple ingredients, I didn't have lemons so I used Lemon Pepper, garlic powder and regular sugar, this is by far the best Salmon I have ever eaten! Thanks for posting this Restaurant Quality recipe, a keeper and will be made often and added to my "Best of 2012 Cookbook" as well. Made for Spring Photo Tag.

Very good salmon - never thought of using sugar before on fish but it was good (I did use the turbinado sugar). Served with tossed salad. Easy and good dinner. Thanks for sharing!

Usually I don't really peppers on my food. And I was surprised with the taste of this salmon. In fact the fresh black pepper with the brown sugar (which I used) is great with the salmon. It was just a little bit and peppery. Thanks Kerfuffle :) Made for 123 hit wonders
