I made this again, fried fresh salmon.....it was so so easy and deliciouse. Iserved with quickly fried veg and brown rice, my husband loved it. I think l will have a hard time bbqing salmon in the future. Delici ous. So quick and easy. I used a premium balsamic from the olive tap. I would make this again. I would serve it with a spinach salad with mandarin oranges the next time. Janet. VFE

Not quite as flavorful as I had hoped, but still good.

Fast, Easy, and tastes good, too! I used some of the sauce on a bed of rice, with a side of garden green beans and chopped red tomatos.
