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. Read More

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. Read More

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 I could have even less brown sugar! I was surprised the flavors didn't overpower the salmon! Definitely worth trying!! Read More

My husband has early onset heart disease, so we have changed our diet a lot. We eat fish at least twice a week. It is hard because we are not big fish eaters. This is the best salmon recipe that I have found. I marinate it and grill it. It is delicious and simple. Read More
