I made this in the broiler-can't wait to try it on the grill-great flavor and easy.



OMG! This recipe is FABULOUS! The marinade is to-die-for and I find it just as good on pork and also steak. My fav' dish at Steak & Ale restaurant is their Bourbon Street Steak. I tried marinating some filets in this marinade and found that it tasted EXACTLY like theirs. We loved the salmon; found the marinade just as good on steak. Thank you so much for posting this great recipe!



I liked this recipe but have made better salmon in the past so I wouldn't rush to make this again. I didn't have any chives so I used parsley instead. I used the broiler so perhaps next time the grill would be better.
