  1. My husband is still talking about this salmon - the morning after our dinner. It's safe to say that I'm tucking this recipe into my best-of-the-best file. It's absolutely delicious! I skipped the dill, but otherwise kept the recipe the same (using the Dijon option). The flavors are absolutely wonderful. I served the salmon and sauce over brown rice. Yum. Made during Family Picks for the Soup-A-Stars ZWT9
  2. So good! I made this as directed but had to cook mine a little longer that stated. Very simple and flavorful. Thanks for sharing, Alli. Made for ZWT9.
  3. I made this exactly as posted, using one 1.5-lb. piece of salmon fillet instead of individual ones. I was surprised how the brown sugar rub actually liquefied in the refrigerator and permeated the fish, which intensified the flavor. I will definitely make this again. Made by a Tasty Tester for ZWT9.
  4. This was so good! IT cooked up perfectly in the time stated. I did add the glaze at the end and put it back in the warmed oven for about 5 minutes to thicken it up and caramelize it a little. Going into my best of cookbook! Made for ZWT-9.
  5. I used a frozen salmon, thawed. It was not the best salmon but with this recipe, it helped a lot. The sauce is so yummy. I used grainy dijon mustard in the sauce. For DH it was too sweet but for me, I liked it ;) Thanks Alli :) Made for Holiday tag game


  1. I halved the ingredients, marinated the salmon for one hour and grilled it indirectly for 20-minutes on my Weber Genesis grill. Outstanding!


Someone special recently gifted me with membership ~ I don't know who, but know they are special :D! Thank you! It is much appreciated.... My parents owned a grocery store when I was growing up, so there's my love of FOOD! My friends all love to drink, so there's my profession! I stopped bartending 5 years ago, when my son was born, but still 'do' private parties. DH and I did a 'Supper Club' for a while, but life kept getting in the way! I am a SAHM, to a rambunctious 5 y.o....I LOVE cooking and collect cookbooks and anything kitchen related! I'm kinda picky, but will just drop an ingredient or make a sub, so I can still try a recipe. I'm looking forward to many years of enjoyment here, and hope to participate in some events soon! Thanks to everyone for posting such great recipes, and if you review mine, just know that I appreciate the time and effort involved in the reviewing process! <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <a href=""><img src=""></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> Partnered with chef#724631 <img src="" border="0" alt="Susie's Banner for Newest Zaar Tag"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> Co-hosted: <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="New Kids Participation Banner"> <img src=""> <img src =""> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="BBBZWT%"></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" > <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src= "">
