    This is a recipe I also use and get rave reviews over. However....I adapted it 3 yrs ago from TX Land and Cattle restaurant's version, only they use brown sugar and Shiner Bock dark beer! With this bourbon version, I lay my fillets out and gently press the brown sugar into the fillets, then sprinkle them with the bourbon - I let them "rest" for about 30 minutes before quickly browning the sugar glazed filets over med-high heat in a non-stick saucepan, about 2 min each side. I wrap up the cooking process by popping them in the microwave for 1-1 1/2 minutes, depending on the thickness of the filets. These filets make a terrific presentation in a romaine-based salad with a topping of honey and brown sugar glazed coarsely chopped pecans (Johnny Carino's restaurants serve it like this) Enjoy! Impressive and will work well over the holidays.  -  06 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Absolutely wonderful. I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out perfect. I'm not sure why the previous reviewers experienced burned food, I had no problems. Just in case though, be sure not to use too much heat. Good luck!  -  15 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    The only change I made to the recipe was to soak my salmon in milk first to help counteract that fishy flavor. I was hoping that the bourbon would make "saucier" caramel but it all evaporated off & the caramel was indeed, caramel. I made extra to use as a topping & as soon as it hit the plate it solidified into a pretty tasty, chewy morsel of caramel. But who wants to peel caramel off their plate? LOL The flavor was great paired w/ the salmon though so next time, I'll add the bourbon later so that it doesn't all cook off. I paired this w/ brown rice cooked in wine & chicken broth & a salad w/ rice pudding for dessert. Thansk for a nice recipe Debbie F...we enjoyed it.  -  24 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
