very good! Did not use the amount of sugar called for--kind of chickened out for fear that it would be sweet but it is not--it adds a subtle quality that makes for great eating. Also used fresh basil doubled the quantity did not have garlic salt so I used powder and regular salt--all of these details doesn't change the overall effect of the dish. Shows well the sugar glazing adds a golden appearance. Very much recommend this. You can tell it is written by someone that understands that salmon needs only augmentation and this treatment does just that. Read More

I've had much better salmon. The flavors were odd together (my husband and I usually like a sweet glaze) and not at all appealing. The vinegar was strong and in my opinion doesn't belong with a subtle tasting fish. I will not make this again. It ruined a perfectly good filet. I recommend "Baked Dijon Salmon" instead. Read More

Yummy! My picky "Don't let that fish touch my steak!" boyfriend even admitted this was good. Sweet and tangy at the same time. Adds flavor without overwhelming the salmon. Use fresh basil ( 2 Tbs) for best flavor. Garlic salt is unnecessary. Just add some salt and more garlic! Read More

Used this marinade on some sockeye salmon filets and then BBQ'd them. The marinade is excellent on salmon-- the sweetness seems to go perfectly with the fatiness of the fish! I used balsamic vinegar because I didn't have any red wine ving. and it turned out fine. Read More

Salmon is one of our favorite healthy foods. I enjoy preparing this recipe with asparagus and rice pilaf for accompaniments. For the final touch I use a lemon sauce drizzled over both the salmon and asparagus. It is a beautiful presentation. Read More

This was delicious. I like things a little sweeter and thought the sugar added a nice subtle flavor. Very good and we didn't have to marinate it forever! Read More

This recipe has an excellent sweet flavor in the after taste. Don't be afraid to be liberal with the sugar. I also added about 1/2 a tsp of lemon pepper and used a few extra cloves of garlic. I don't have a grill so I put a little oil on a skillet and grilled it up like that. Read More

Delicious! I used the broiler though and loved watching the sugar turning dark. That was the best part of it all:) I used chopped fresh basil instead of dry. Read More
