We love this recipe, a wonderful way to marinate Salmon, then bake in the oven, or grill on the BBQ, whatever works, it is all good. Serve with rice pilaf, a green salad, and some grilled or steamed Asparagus (or steamed Artichoke). My hubby fished commercially in S.E. Alaska for two years, and this is one of his fave recipes for cooking Salmon.
