"The marinade/basting sauce for the salmon fillets is a study in contrasts: bright citrus and sweet, smoky bourbon."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I made this in the broiler-can't wait to try it on the grill-great flavor and easy.
The marinade itself did not enhance the natural flavors of the salmon in the beneficial way asian/lemonbutter/ or dijon marinades do. I think it completely overpowered the fish.
OMG! This recipe is FABULOUS! The marinade is to-die-for and I find it just as good on pork and also steak. My fav' dish at Steak & Ale restaurant is their Bourbon Street Steak. I tried marinating some filets in this marinade and found that it tasted EXACTLY like theirs. We loved the salmon; found the marinade just as good on steak. Thank you so much for posting this great recipe!
I liked this recipe but have made better salmon in the past so I wouldn't rush to make this again. I didn't have any chives so I used parsley instead. I used the broiler so perhaps next time the grill would be better.
HEAVENLY! I make salmon for dinner frequently, but I was looking for something different...this was definately restaurant quality. I didn't have bourbon, so I used Grand Marnier instead (I also marinated the salmon for 5 hours). This recipe is a keeper! Thanks!
I'm always looking for new marinades for fish, and especially ones without oil for healthier eating. We were really impressed with this recipe. It tasted great! We liked it so much, I'm making it again tonight!
Very good sauce, especially liked the bourbon flavor - it wasn't too strong at all. I didn't have chives so I substituted 1 tablespoon of fresh chopped ginger (the kind that comes in a jar) and I liked the resulting flavor from it.
I prepared this dish for dinner tonight and it won raves! For convenience sake, I prepared the marinade a day early and let the fillets rest over night. Not only was it delicious, but it was quite easy, as well! This is an ideal serving suggestion if you're looking to impress!
Something about the grill's heat brings out the best flavor in the simplest chicken recipe.
