Reviews for Caramel Glazed Salmon
"We love this salmon recipe. A word of caution. This is one case where broiling cannot be swapped for grilling. Sauce caused excessive flare ups. I found out the hard way the 2nd time I made this recipe."
"everyone enjoyed it. Didn't put in the cayenne pepper."
"We really enjoyed this salmon recipe. I used spicy brown mustard because I didn't have any Dijon mustard."
"Good solid recipe. Always looking for ways to spruce up salmon which gets so dull, but it's so affordable!"
"Excellent recipe. I used grainy mustard. I also added 1tsp of maple syrup. I served a spinach salad with a raspberry dressing. Very nice. Janet"
"Used spicy brown mustard instead of Dijon because that is what I had on hand and only had about 1/3 teaspoon of dill. I still really enjoyed it and would like to make it again with the full amount of dill."
"We live in Alaska, so we eat a lot of salmon! This recipe was fantastic!! Great salmon flavor, and so easy!"
