  1. Really enjoyed this recipe. So easy and delicious. Thinking of using the rub on other things as well!
  2. Excellent recipe for salmon. The combination of herbs and spices was wonderful and we loved the brown sugar for a touch of sweetness. This made quite a bit of dry rub so we'll be enjoying this again soon, and I might add a bit of cayenne for a little more heat.
  3. Very flavorful, not too spicy.
  4. This was excellent. I doubled the brown sugar, because we like rubs on the sweeter side, and it was perfect. This is definitely a keeper! Thanks for posting it!
  5. This was every bit as good as everybody says. I cooked the salmon on the grill exactly as suggested in the recipe and it was perfect. I did add a spice rub to my salmon (Whole Foods Teguila-Cilantro mix) , but everything else was to recipe. This sauce would be good on chicken and other seafood. Thanks for posting.
