    I was not a salmon fan until I tried this recipe. My son went fishing and brought salmon home so I had to cook it and I'll definitely be making this fish again. Loved it.

    The glaze is delicious! We also grilled the salmon. A definite keeper!

    Very nice and different sauce! Used two individual salmon fillets and cooked in skillet with olive oil on stove and added sauce after salmon was cooked. Omitted salt. Next time will lessen sugar. Was great! Thank you for sharing!

    This one is a keeper. I cooked my salmon on the grill on foil and it was fantastic

    The glaze was really good, but I must not have cooled it enough cuz it rolled right off the salmon.

    I am not a salmon fan, but in an attempt to cook healthier I tried this recipe. It was surprisingly good. I omitted the mustard because I really, really don't like it. If you want the sauce to thicken and glaze, turn the oven up to 385. I will definitely make this one again.

    This is good, but I was hoping it would be more flavorful.
