DH & I found this just OK....better if you add the sauce on top of the salmon when you eat it....but nothing amazing. My dad & his wife REALLY liked it though. I followed the recipe just as written, but doubt I'll make again. Thanks for sharing.
This is excellent, and so easy. I used 3 fillets and marinated in the fridge for 4 hours. I usually bake my salmon fillets on a cookie sheet for 13 minutes at 400 degrees, so I did that here and it worked fine. I would not skip the pecans, they are a great touch. Thanks Kitten!
My husband and I made this last night for dinner. I let the salmon marinate in the fridge all day & then we grilled it. We barbecued it for about 4 minutes per side & added the pecans on top after the first side was done. My husband was not a big salmon lover before, but her sure is now! We'll definitely be making this again, maybe even for company.
