"Salmon with a tasty glaze is our favorite way to eat salmon. Rice and steamed veggies makes an excellent dinner."

"This recipe makes a great 2-hour marinade (basting doesn't add enough flavor but it is too strong to use at the table).

Thanks for posting this Naomi!"

"My kids and I thought this was the worst recipe for Salmon I have ever made. The molasses burned and there was NO taste. It was very heavy and oily with the olive oil.I will not make this again."

"This recipe was surprisingly easy. It was too cold and wet to grill outside so we broiled the salmon without basting it and it still turned out excellent. My husband, who does not like salmon, actually went back for seconds!"

"This recipe was very easy to whip together, but I did make a few changes. The molasses was very overpowering and "bitter" in the glaze, so I added a couple of tablespoons of brown sugar to sweeten it up a bit. Also as I was cooking I added more garlic powder on top. I didn't have access to a grill in the middle of winter, but it does cook fast and so moist just in a saute pan. Delicious!"
