    I use this recipe all the time when I cook salmon. I got it out of my Quick Cooking Magazine from Taste of Home. The trick is to use less Dill Weed and less Brown Sugar. I add approx. 1 tsp.dill, and 1 cup brown sugar. Then adjust to taste. I cook mine in the oven, and baste with sauce. My family loves it!  -  03 Jan 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Fantastic Salmon glaze! I left out the dill and added 1 tsp ground ginger. I only used half the cayenne pepper, and it was perfect. My 5 year old had 3 helpings. It looked elegant. I'll serve this for company.  -  05 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe was great!!! I baked it in the oven for 15 minutes at 400, and used a lemon/dill seasoning mix to lighten the dill flavor. Also, I cut back to 1/2 cup sugar, but doubled the cayenne. Super easy and great presentation!! Will definately make again!  -  04 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
