For the rub the only addition of spice I did was some powdered garlic and some black pepper. I did leave the rub on the fish for about an hour before we grilled it. For the sauce, I didn't find a three berry preserve but I had blackberry, strawberry and red raspberry (all Smucker's), so I mixed them together. I tasted the preserves with the lime and well it was just preserves, needed something more. So I added in a couple tablespoons of Mae Ploy sweet chili sauce and oh boy, was that was the best sweet spicy topping ever. The salmon was flaky and tender with the nice sweet spicy crust and the berry sauce made this one of the best salmon dishes yet. We served this with Strawberry Fields salad on Allrecipes.

More like 3 stars for me but 5 for hubs so 4 stars it is. Used skinless salmon. Had to use a mixture of hald strawberry half apricot preserves as that is all I had. Will likely make again but double the rub ingredients- just didn't seem like much. Also- made the kids an alternative salmon b/c I thought this would be spicy for some reason but it wasn't spicy at all.

My husband and I tried this recipe for the first time last night. I love salmon, and I have been looking for a recipe for awhile that makes me want to devour every morsel on my plate. I've FINALLY found it. This was nothing short of AMAZING. Not to mention so simple, which makes it even better. (The only thing I did without was the lime zest. I find that zest often tends to overwhelm sauces.) We like spicy, but were worried that it might be too spicy. We actually started coughing when we tried a bite without the sauce. But the sauce balanced it out, and you couldn't even tell it was a spicy dish. I'm already planning all the people I can't wait to cook this for. I'm so excited to share this dish. Sooooo good.

I used the marinade on both salmon and chicken, loved it on both. I used a wildberry jelly that I had on hand and it turned out great with the salmon. I really like the spicy-sweet combination.

This was very good!! Flaky and fell right off my fork. Could have used a bit more chipotle chile powder for more of a kick. Will make again!

This was so easy to make and was a hit with my dinner guests. I didn't make any adjustments to the recipe and it was perfect. I would make this for myself or for guests, because it's easy to dress up and looks a lot fancier than the ease of preparation would have you think!

Extremely quick and easy to make! I didn't change anything, and it was fantastic! We will be making this the next time we have friends over for dinner.
