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.

R U serious??? This is so flipping good! And just as flipping easy! I had seen "prepared" bourbon salmon in grocery stores, but never bought Bcause they were usually made with farm raised salmon. So, I tried making this 2nite with wild caught glad I did. Salmon is so darn good 4 U and as good as this tastes, I could eat this every nite! No xtra time needed to marinade....recipe tastes great exactly as posted!
