    I followed the suggestion of some Yummly users and reduced the salt and increased the cook time. This is a great recipe.

    it came out good, the flavor was more in the sweeter side and the salmon came out softer then usual , maybe the sugar ?

    I do wish I would have read the reviews regarding the salt. The salt is too much I should have reduced it by half. Otherwise brilliant recipe will be using it again and again.

    It was good but had too much salt to my taste I would do teaspoons instead of tablespoons

    Excellent. I only used a bit of sugar and salt though and put it in the oven.

    Horrible! It sounded very good. It was so salty and overwhelming Pepper flavor. I used less salt and pepper than the recipe called for and it was so bad. One of the worst recipes I ever made. Total waste of good salmon

    Great Flavor! Will be my new favorite!! But needed to cook much longer than expected due to thicknesses of the fillets. I would suggest searing on medium high heat for 5 min each side, then lower heat to medium low & cover until inside is done. It took about 20 minutes longer.

    It is absolutely perfect! I did shake in a bit of cayenne to counter the sweetness (just one shake). My daughter ate it all up. Delicious.

    I fried the salmon, after broiling, until it was black and a little crispy/crunchy. 10/10 that way!
