This one had a little too much sugar in it for our tastes. It also definitely needed the optional salt and the addition of a little ground black pepper as well.

Please explain how this is "healthy". Brown sugar and soy sauce? Plus option for ADDING salt? This might be a tasty dish indeed but certainly not healthy.

This will be added to my rotation of ways to cook salmon! I used a little less than 1/4 cup brown sugar and about 4tsp olive oil and 2 large cloves of garlic. This was so delicious but I think...

This was Perfect for me. Tangy and sweet, didn't overpower the fish. I will be making this one again.

Delcious. We used the recipe to prepare 3 salmon filets. Everyone loved it.

My picky husband liked it, will reduce brown sugar next time.

I recently made this recipe! Forgot to take a picture though. It turned out really well. Pretty much followed the reciped to a T.

the taste was great! the salt and sugar make we wonder how healthy it was. I think I'll try again using less sugar. I din't 'use the lemon zest and it was still very tasty.

My go to marinate for salmon!!!
