I'm so glad I got over my salmon fear. It's becoming a weekly staple in our house and I'm enjoying trying different recipes. This recipe is supposed to be grilled, but I just cooked it in the oven. I read a few reviews and broiled it. I basted, cooked for three minutes, basted again and cooked for another 5 minutes. Hubs said the sauce was fantastic, and I would have to agree. It's the perfect sweet and tangy combination, enjoy!
sorry for the crappy phone pic...i'm missing my nice camera!

Preheat grill to medium heat. Brush salmon with vegetable oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Place the salmon skin side down on the grill. Coat the flesh of the salmon fillets with the brown sugar mixture. Grill for 6 to 8 minutes to medium doneness, turning once after 5 to 6 minutes.
