I'm originally from the Pacific Northwest and consider myself a salmon purest. This is the ONLY sauce I will EVER serve with my very favorite fish.

All I could taste in this was the soy sauce making it way too salty. Even though I used a grainy, strong Dijon mustard I couldn't taste any of it or any ketchup. Next time I will halve the soy sauce and at least double the mustard and ketchup as well as increase the Worchestershire sauce. Hopefully this will prevent it from ruining very good salmon. Read More

This was a beautiful blend of flavors. I was going to add a little lemon juice, as suggested by other reviewers, but once I tasted the original sauce as written, I was already hooked. This made a boatload of sauce and I spooned the extra over baked potatoes, then sprinkled with bacon bits. We liked it on the potatoes even more than on the salmon.... seriously, this stuff would make treebark taste fantastic! Awesome recipe! Read More

This was good but a little salty. I also cooked it too far ahead so I turned it off thinking it would stay warm but it got cold and the ingredients separated. I will make this again because we enjoyed the flavor. It goes good with the salmon. Read More

MMMmmm. Nice complement to the strong salmon flavor. Also doubles as a salad dressing with the warm salmon on top of crisp greens. Read More

Wasn't buttery and didn't look anything like the picture. All that soy sauce made it way to salty. Read More
