I was so looking forward to this dish, and was so disappointed. All I could taste was the sweet with no salt to balance it. I should have followed my instincts and salted the fish before adding the rub. Also, I don't think the thyme worked with the brown sugar/cayenne pepper mixture. As for the cooking method, I was less than impressed. The fish was overcooked in 15 minutes, much less the 40 minutes recommended in the directions. I would have been better off to have grilled it directly on the racks and watched it more closely. I won't make this recipe again.
This was sooo easy and delicious, I had a smaller salmon, cut the recipe in half -- it was a little sweet and I made it a bit hotter -- you can adjust that part to your liking. Scalloped potatoes and roasted green beans on the side, grilled on a cedar plank, it was fabulous!
Simply delicious, and so easy to make with only 4 ingredients in the rub! This was our first grilled-fish-on-a-plank experience and we'll definitely repeat it. I had a 1.3 lb filet of wild salmon so I halved the amount of brown sugar after reading reviews that thought the rub was too sweet. Kept the other measures same. Turned out beautifully and full of flavor both sweet & heat. This will be a go-to salmon rub recipe for us going forward!
Our guest loved it! It has a good sweet/heat ratio.
EASY and wow!
Melt in your mouth good.
our favorite salmon! we've had this as a family, with company, made it at company. buy the salmon- everything else is a staple. make it once & you've got the recipe memorized! this is our go-to salmon recipe & I've given it out several times too. the edges get sweet & crispy- like candy! this is so good.
I thought this recipe was WAY too sweet. Will not repeat...
