This was very good and I would make it again. However, I don't think I'd bother with that last step of drizzling the grilled salmon with the heated sauce. I thought that setting aside a portion of the sauce and heating it made an additional unnecessary step. When I'm grilling I'm doing enough running back and forth from the kitchen to the deck. I felt that several brushings-on of the sauce did a fine job of imparting the flavor to the salmon. I did like that little bite from the cayenne pepper. Ran out of grill gas tonight and had to finish the fish under the broiler, but that worked perfectly.

This recipe was delicious. I substituted dill weed for basil and cayenne for paprika. My family loved it!

I have made this several times now and my husband & I both love it! So simple yet so tasty. We have salmon now just so we could use this recipe!
