Red pepper flakes and cayenne provide the fiery flavor that gives these salmon steaks their name. Basting the fish with the zippy sauce while grilling creates a glossy glaze. —Phyllis Schmalz of Kansas City, Kansas

This recipe is a keeper for real. I loved the flavor combination. Spicy, tangy and sweet.

I added some maple syrup to make the sauce a bit thicker because I baked it in the oven. 15 min @ 400F. Delicious!
