  1. Stir together the hot sauce, brown sugar, butter, honey, and lemon juice in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir continuously for 3 to 4 minutes, until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is well blended. Remove from heat, and set aside.
  2. Coat a casserole dish with olive oil. Poke holes in the salmon with a fork, then place into the dish. Pour reserved sauce over the fish, top with green onions, and season with salt and pepper. Marinate for 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 C).
  4. Bake salmon in preheated oven, uncovered, until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 25 minutes.

We enjoyed this recipe for the most part, but I felt that the flavor of the hot sauce really masked the flavor of the salmon. This recipe would be well-suited for a person who isn't crazy about ...

BAD BAD BAD. I don't know how this gets such high ratings, unless the secret is in what brand of hot sauce you buy. I used Louisianna Hot Sauce and all I could taste was that, along with a fis...

Excellent. I work with the chef who created this recipe. I was dubious as to the thought of Hot Sauce and Salmon--sounds like it would overpower the natural taste. I can assure you that it ...

I was looking for a non-soy sauce based salmon dish. This looked promising because I had all the ingredients and I love spicy food. I'm sorry but I didn't care for it at all. I have variety o...
