"It was really really good. My husband loved it too, and it took 10-15 minutes to prepare. Instead of grilling the fish, I actually baked it and it turned out great. You don't have to cook a whole day to make an awesome fish dish :)"

"Didn't eat the salmon so I can only rate the salsa-which was absolutely delightful. I left out the grapes, only because I didn't have any, and added diced onion. We ate it as a side dish with hamburgers, but it was gone quickly as I caught family members dipping into the salsa throughout the day for a snack."

"I used Snapper instead of Salmon. I also omitted the grapes but added chopped mango's and peaches to make this a sweeter salsa for the fish. Mix with wild rice for an excellant side dish also."

"I am not a big fish fan, but I cooked this because my husband loves fish. It was very good! It didn't taste 'fishy' to me at all. I did leave the grapes out of the salsa and it still tasted good."

"Have not made the fish part of this recipe yet and almost left out the grapes in the salsa--It would have been a very big mistake! I used Jalapeno chiles instead of green chiles and cut the brown sugar to 1/2 teasp. YUMMY!"
