Sweet Paprika Salmon

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by Debi H

This is a quick and easy salmon recipe for the grill. I found it in the Heart Healthy magazine and it has become our favorite salmon recipe for the grill. You can add more cayenne pepper if you like it spicier - I added 1/4 tsp. and it was great for our tastes and I also used Splenda brown sugar cutting the sugar in half. Putting it here on the 'zaar for safe keeping - I tend to lose recipes that are on bits of paper :-)

This was GREAT! I found it slightly too 'hot' (spicy hot) for my tastes and will probably cut back on the cayenne a little bit next time, but it was fantastic otherwise. Made for My 3 Chefs.
