Miss Annie, I double the five stars to TEN. I just loved the salmon. I used brown sugar instead of white sugar. I forgot the cayenne pepper. But I did season the fish with Pepper before marinating . This recipe is a keeper!!!!!!

Love the flavours in this salmon dish, the cayenne gives it a tasty zing. Served with a green salad and baked potato. yum!

What a great marinade and glaze for salmon. It is so simple to throw together and the result was that wonderful sweet/hot/salty/sour combination that we love. I chose to grill it which resulted in nice caramelized bits from the sugar and ketchup. Thank you Miss Annie for sharing the recipe.
