My father-in-law had a friend who fished for salmon in Lake Michigan. Every year, he gave my FIL 3 salmon; my FIL converted an old refrigerator into a smoker, smoked the salmon for his buddy, and kept one for himself. Those were the “good old days” when we raved about his smoked salmon, and he shared with us!
Sadly, those days are long gone, but salmon remains my favorite seafood…
This recipe for salmon, with it’s mouthwatering sauce, is adapted from Cooking Light, and has all the right flavors ~ sweet, salty, spicy and sour ~ all the right flavors that don’t outshine the salmon!
It’s still on the cool side here so I turned the oven on again for dinner last night, but this is a great recipe for the grill also.
The salmon is very tasty, really good ~ I didn’t have any leftovers and doubt if you will have either, when you make it.
