    yummy and juicy. did have a tad too much salt. need to be careful not to burn the skin with sugar on it.

    Amazing dish!! I used brown sugar, instead of white sugar and Hawaiian Black Salt instead of sea salt. I also added black pepper, orange peel, and garlic powder!! I loved it and will definitely make this one again. #SuperEasy #MmmmmGood

    Omg, i love darkened anything this didn’t disappoint. What else can I carmelize. I followed the recipe to the tee (so easy) and fried it 5 minutes each side on med high in canola oil.

    Needed extra time in oven to cook through middle. Good flavor... Just had thick salmon fillet that took extra time / attention.

    Loved it! Sweet and tender and no time at all (15-20min I thawed the salmon beforehand)

    I have my own version of this recipe. I use brown sugar and whiskey! but its cool seeing what others do to make it..

    Looks great, tastes good. I doubled the sugar so the salt, pepper wasn’t so strong but still would half the salt and pepper next time. If you aren’t from a country that is used to heavily salted fish it IS a bit strong. I think next time I’ll add some juice - orange or even pineapple - and drizzle it before the second side cooks.

    It's great, never had like this before. Served over a bed of rice that is cooked with little butter. Very simple! Only thing I would do different is cut back on the salt tremendously. other than that I've found a new recipe to add to my collection.
