"This lemon-garlic seasoned soy sauce and brown sugar marinade is a perfect compliment to rich salmon fillets. So good, and so good for you!"

This one had a little too much sugar in it for our tastes. It also definitely needed the optional salt and the addition of a little ground black pepper as well.

This will be added to my rotation of ways to cook salmon! I used a little less than 1/4 cup brown sugar and about 4tsp olive oil and 2 large cloves of garlic. This was so delicious but I think...

Please explain how this is "healthy". Brown sugar and soy sauce? Plus option for ADDING salt? This might be a tasty dish indeed but certainly not healthy.

This was Perfect for me. Tangy and sweet, didn't overpower the fish. I will be making this one again.

Delcious. We used the recipe to prepare 3 salmon filets. Everyone loved it.
