Oh, Elly! This is delicious! I worried that the whiskey was going to overpower everything else, and often honey or lemon zest will turn off DH or DS. Not this time! Every flavor had a part in the harmony of this dish. The last salmon recipe we made was such a disappointment that I almost didn't try this one, but the Irish whiskey kept calling to me. Two years ago I lost my Irish father & mom sent me & DH home with a bottle of his Irish whiskey. We hadn't used it yet & I never thought I'd actually find a recipe that called for it, so I knew I had to do this one. The whole family raved over this salmon & I can't believe how easy it was! We'll definitely make it again! Made in honor of your dear DH, Jim.
