  1. "ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS" great blend of simple ingredients, I didn't have lemons so I used Lemon Pepper, garlic powder and regular sugar, this is by far the best Salmon I have ever eaten! Thanks for posting this Restaurant Quality recipe, a keeper and will be made often and added to my "Best of 2012 Cookbook" as well. Made for Spring Photo Tag.
  2. Very good salmon - never thought of using sugar before on fish but it was good (I did use the turbinado sugar). Served with tossed salad. Easy and good dinner. Thanks for sharing!
  3. Usually I don't really peppers on my food. And I was surprised with the taste of this salmon. In fact the fresh black pepper with the brown sugar (which I used) is great with the salmon. It was just a little bit and peppery. Thanks Kerfuffle :) Made for 123 hit wonders
  4. Definitely delicious! Easy. One thing I did learn --finally and too late for nice photo here-- that I need to rub the salmon all over with the brown sugar, sauce, or whatever so that ugly white protein stuff does not show up. Our fish was thin so ten minutes worked good. Served with recipe#245872 and green salad. Thanks for posting.
  5. Delicious! A wonderful mix of sweet and spicy. Easy to make too! Made on a weeknight after work, and dinner was done in no time! Thanks for sharing! Made for PRMR tag.
