Little salty.

I used Zataran's Brand of Creole seasoning and we all agreed it was very salty. I've used the seasoning before in small amounts. If I make this again I would problably use much less of the Zat...

I didn't care for this recipe. It might have been better on a cedar plank. Thanks.

Flavorful but tough to grill salmon without drying it out. Thicker cuts are better.

Wow, really salty and spicey, too much for my taste.

Great mix of seasonings, but too salty.
