      Well, I am not at all surprised, but you have another hit! We really enjoyed this. It is so quick, so easy and so impressive looking. I halved the recipe for just the two of us. I didn't serve it with pesto, but on top on pasta tossed in basil pesto. It was slightly too sweet, but that is easily fixed by reducing the brown sugar a bit, that's just a matter of preference of course. Thanks Cookiedog!

      WOW - this is simply wow! So quickly made and so tasty. I used honey instead of brown sugar and reduced it to half the amount because honey is much sweeter than brown sugar. The salmon remains so juicy, and the lemon balances the sweetness nicely. Thanks for posting this fabulous recipe!
