We eat salmon all summer long, and this is our favorite way to fix it. The mild sauce-brushed on as the fish grills-really enhances the taste. —Janis Smoke, King Salmon, Alaska.

"Light tasting and the sweet brown sugar makes the salmon taste acceptable."

"I'm not a big fish eater, but have been trying to cook it since it is healthy. I was really weary to even taste this, but to my surprise it was very delicious! My husband & I loved it! We also fixed it on a George Foreman grill & heated it the next day. It is so full of flavor, you forget you're eating fish!"
