Great, easy recipe. My outdoor grill is closed up for the season, and I didn't want to get my stove top all greasy using the grill pan. So after marinating the fish for 4 hours, I put the fish in a glass dish, poured the marinade over and put it in a 400 degree convection oven for 20 minutes, GREAT. Putting it in the oven with the marinade gives the fish a glaze. Delicious!! Thanks
From the reviews, I expected this to be simply extraordinary, but my husband and I were both disappointed. I followed the recipe exactly, but used our George Foreman Grill instead of an outdoor grill (we don't have one), so perhaps that was the problem? It wasn't that it didn't taste good, but that we have other salmon-recipes that are much more flavorful. I did like the slight sweetness from the brown sugar, though, and will add that to our favorite recipe.
Don't throw the marinade out!!! Put the marinade in a saucepan with a couple of tablespoons of dry white wine and simmer for about 5 minutes. Drizzle on the salmon - just makes it even better.
We use this recipe ALL THE TIME! The marinade is fine for a few hours, but the flavor is best when you marinade overnight. I let it soak in a plastic zip bag rather than a covered dish. So easy! If you're missing one or two ingredients, it's usually still very good. I often make it with canola oil rather than peanut oil, and it's just as good IMO. I make this for others and share the recipe often.
Probably my favorite recipe from this site....seriously.
I baked mine instead of grilling, and it had a very appealing aroma. Delicious taste also. I reduced the cayenne in half because I don't like hot seasonings. It was very flavorful. My husband loved it.
This was excellent. I marinated it overnight and broiled instead of grilled. I poured the marinade over the salmon before broiling and it made a nice think glaze. Other than that I followed the recipe to a T. As a side I served "Spinach and Orzo Salad" and they went very well together.
Great salmon recipe but we all agreed that it was way too spicy. Next time, I will cut the red pepper flakes back to 1 tsp. I agree with other reviewers that it would probably be better if it was marinated at least 8 hrs., or preferrably overnight. I wrapped mine in foil and placed on the grill and it took approximately 15 mins. at med. heat for a 1" thick piece to cook. Thanks, Christine!
Wow, My first Superb success at grilling fish !!! I marinated the salmon for 24hrs. and used about half of the red pepper. I should have used all of it. The taste was phenominal but I personally would have been able to handle more of a kick. Served this with grilled, Basil Shrimp (allrecipes), a pasta salad, green salad, and grilled pineapple (brushed slices with a combo of butter,honey,lemon juice, brown sugar) and ice cream for dessert. This was a Mother's Day hit and a definite Do Over!!
