Oh my stars, this was good! My husband said, "You've made good salmon before, but this is the BEST!" I have to agree. Made 1/3 recipe for the two of us. Marinated about 5 hours and reduced the marinade while the salmon was grilling. The sauce was to die for! Oh my! This recipe is a keeper for sure!
