I found this online and have been meaning to try it--it sounds fabulous and gets great reviews on the other site. I'm putting it here for safekeeping--If you try it, let me know how it turns out! ETA: I have tried this now and we love it! It's a very quick and good way to prepare salmon. ZWT 3: Southern U.S. (Bourbon)

Very tasty and easy. I cut back the brown sugar by half since it is very sweet as written. This is one of my go-to weeknight recipes during salmon season. The sauce also works well on chicken and goes great with a side of wild rice.
