  • Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat, and mix in the brown sugar, lemon juice, dill, and cayenne pepper. Cook and stir until the brown sugar is dissolved. Reduce heat and simmer until ready to brush onto the salmon.

  • Season salmon with lemon pepper, and place directly on the grill grate, skin side down. Brushing frequently with the butter and brown sugar glaze, cook the salmon 20 minutes, or until easily flaked with a fork. Reserve some of the glaze for serving.

I use this recipe all the time when I cook salmon. I got it out of my Quick Cooking Magazine from Taste of Home. The trick is to use less Dill Weed and less Brown Sugar. I add approx. 1 tsp.dill and 1 cup brown sugar. Then adjust to taste. I cook mine in the oven and baste with sauce. My family loves it! Read More

Fantastic Salmon glaze! I left out the dill and added 1 tsp ground ginger. I only used half the cayenne pepper and it was perfect. My 5 year old had 3 helpings. It looked elegant. I'll serve this for company. Read More

This recipe was great!!! I baked it in the oven for 15 minutes at 400 and used a lemon/dill seasoning mix to lighten the dill flavor. Also I cut back to 1/2 cup sugar but doubled the cayenne. Super easy and great presentation!! Will definately make again! Read More

Really quite good. I used 3/4 of a cup sugar and 1 tsp of dill. I also baked in the oven at 375º for 10 minutes per side and it turned out great. Will make again. Read More

My family really enjoyed this recipe. I did use garlic pepper instead of lemon pepper on the salmon however but I really don't think it makes much of a difference. Super yummy!! Read More

I thought the dill did not blend well with the sweet and sour. It had a funny aftertaste. Either taste alone would have been fine but together they didn't combine well. Read More
