      I love salmon and I am looking for different ways to make it. This was good, but not WOW.

      This is really easy to put together - even ahead of time, in bulk, for later use, as a shaker for fish. Very tasty. I used it on baked tilapia, added a little lime juice on top. Terrific! For small fillets or salmon strips, I used a little maple syrup instead of brn. sugar & that was nice too. Thanks, Jango for a nice way to like fish more often.

      Sweet and slightly spicy rub that does a good job of covering up the flavor of the salmon. Handy if you're not crazy about salmon but want to get more of it in your diet. I'd like to emphasize the warning about burning the sugar - it's very touchy. Watch closely as recommended.
