"These simple and few ingredients make for quick but elegant entertaining. The final broiling caramelizes the sugar to give the salmon its attractive, mildly sweet glaze."

This is a very good marinade. I wound up marinating for more than 30 minutes. I did use fresh Rosemary. I prefer to use fresh herbs because it elevates the dish to a whole new level. I would use this marinade on other fish. I would even suggest using this for a pork loin or pork chops. I think the flavors would go really well with that type of protein. I served this on a bed of parmesan polenta and topped it with a polenta cake. I reserved some of the marinade to drizzle over the fish. The marinade I reserved was put aside before I added the fish. As to not contaminate it. I highly recommend reserving some on the side. It's really delicious. I did DOUBLE the recipe knowing I was going to reserve some to drizzle. Thanks for sharing.
Not flavorful enough for us... too bland - even though it smelled good at the time of marinating.
Made this for dinner and loved it. I didn't have any rosemary but it was great without.
Wonderful and flavorful. It's the dead of winter and instead of the grill, I used my oven. Turned out perfect. Like a few others, I reserved some of the marinade and topped it with it at serving time. Very, very good and most definitely will make this again.
I do not like rosemary at all and whenever I make recipes that call for it, I substitute with something else. For this dish, I substituted with oregano and we loved it.
This is such a flexible and FAST recipe. I like to substitute Arctic Chard. Sometimes it's cheaper than salmon, and it's rated very high on the sustainability scale!
this was just as described - simple and elegant; really delicious too! I used 6oz center cut salmon portions for each person; served with brown rice and slivered almonds; asparagus tips drizzed w/ sesame oil - baked in foil, and steamed baby spinach. Very healthy, but the compliments focused on the fantastic flavors. Thank you so much cdagirl!
This was simple and lovely...I added a bit more garlic and used fresh rosemary instead but otherwise it was great as is!
