easy to make, not too sweet, just right. the burnt sugar stuck everything to the pan and plates, so get ready to soak afterward!

It was good. I grilled it on my Lodge cast iron grill on my Weber propane bbq. I added a bit of olive oil to the salmon before “drenching” it in the sugar salt mixture. Cooked it skin side down to start. Flipped it after 5 minutes. The “blackened” salmon was delicious.

It was really good. Salmon very moist except next time I will decrease the salt just a little. Worthy to serve to guest. My family loved it!

Delicious! Not too salty if you use coarse sea salt.

Excellent and easy! What more can you ask for when making dinner? I did cut the sugar to 1/3 cup and the salt to 1 tablespoon. Left pepper as suggested. Cooked in a black iron skillet in avocado oil (I was out of olive oil).

I've cooked this a few times and it's pretty awesome - even when I had the pan too hot, the crispy caramelised taste was still great. An earlier comment mentioned you could halve the amount of sugar and I definitely agree - you just need enough to give a good covering and maybe to sprinkle more on as you go.

Always perfect! Make sure not to tinker too much, recipe is pretty perfect the way it is. Don't skimp out on the quality of the fish!

The cook time on the pan given by directions will render the salmon a charred hockey puck. Since thickness of the fillets varies along with stove temps, so just eyeball it. Could get away with less of the seasoning, a 1/2 cup of sugar with salt and pepper mixed in just means you throw out a bunch of sugar. Think I'll probably cut the seasonings in half next time. Otherwise, great simple recipe to get a good crispy, sweet salmon.

It was way too salty. Only use 1Tbsp salt and maybe that would help. I am thinking maybe the salt is a typo. Should it be tsp.?

This recipe is very simple and very yummy. I used one thin fillet, so I wasn't able to do the 2-3 min per side. As it was a thin piece, I didn't bother adding time. For the broiler, I left it in there for 10 minutes. At no point did I find the skin to stick to anything, which also makes it an easy cleanup.
