    great flavor, would definitely add more glaze about 1/2-3/4 through the cooking time. I also always recommend using a thermometer instead of time to cook your salmon to perfection

    This was good and easy to make, way better than the recipe with honey, butter and lemon glaze. Tip: be generous with the bbq sauce because the taste is not rich and very light. Had it with Greek salad 👍

    Husband loved it. Toddlers loved it. It was quick and easy. I did add a Louisiana seasoning to the salmon that my husband said he wished I added more of.

    Simple, delicious and easy to follow. Perfect for a weeknight dinner, served with asparagus and roasted red potatoes tossed with garlic and olive oil. All diners really enjoyed and several asked for a second helping. I'd probably add a couple extra salmon filets or get larger portions next time if I know I'm feeding a really hungry crowd. Depending on your oven and thickness of the salmon, may need an extra minute or so under the broiler. I ended up checking at 7 minutes and found it needed about 2 more minutes. Have made this recipe twice now and will definitely make again. Two thumbs up!
