    Loved it. Only had dark rum in the house, so I used that. Also just poured everything into a glass baking dish just big enough for all of the fish (so the fish baked well covered in the glaze) & baked until the fish was done. Delicious!
    Imagine it would be good on pork too. - 4/8/09

    I finally got around to making this last night (02/17). It was Incredible. I allowed the glaze to cook long enough to where it actually became glaze like. This involves cooking it longer than the recipe states. I used the bourbon too. We're going to make it again and up the glaze quantity some. - 2/18/09

    Very tasty, not to hard to make. I didn't use bourbon, so the marinade started to burn, I needed a little more liquid. - 11/28/08

    I made this exactly as the recipe directed, and it was wonderful. My husband dislikes salmon, and he liked it. Even my 9 year old took seconds. I'll definitely be making it again. Thanks for sharing it. - 11/4/08

    This sounds good. Could you use any other alcohol (I think the only thing I have is Southern Comfort) - 9/27/08

    This is wonderful. I cut the brown sugar in half which made it more appropriate to my personal taste. The glaze is rich and has depth of flavor. - 4/5/09

    I love to cook and this sounds terrific! Because we don't drink I'll have to go buy one of those tiny little sample bottles of bourbon. I'm really looking forward to having this for dinner next week. I know I'll just love it. - 3/27/09

    We had this for dinner, and it was very good. We had to keep adding water to the pan though to keep the marinade from burning - is this normal (we did only make a 1/2 portion though)? Other than that, it was quick, easy, and delicous. Thanks for sharing! - 11/3/08

    I omitted the bourbon because I didn't have any and didn't want to buy a bottle just to use an ounce. It was really great though. Just as good as any restaurant and way healthier. - 10/3/08

    Loved this! (Hubby wasn't sure - he's "not used to pan cooked salmon" -sigh...but he ate the other 3 portions, so I'm pretty sure he liked it.)
    My only problem was the filet I had was VERY thick so it took forever. I ended up covering it until it was done. I will definitely make this again! - 9/26/08

    Reply from PUNKIN7743 (10/5/08)
    Usually the pieces are thick. if I find it's taking too long to finish cooking... just zap it in the microwave for a minute

  • Flavorful! I used Korbel XS brandy; had the same issue others did with the sauce cooking down too quickly and the fish not cooking in the time suggested, so I kept adding water to the sauce and microwaved the fish for about 30 seconds to complete the cooking. - 7/16/13

  • This was excellent and very easy. The marinade really balanced the flavor of the salmon so that it wasn't too fishy. I made it with the parmesan asparagus recipe (also on Spark), and it was great. Paired well with chardonnay. - 1/12/12

  • I used Honey Bourbon in place of regular bourbon and grilled the salmon. I only marinated the fish for about 5 minutes (anything more than 15 minutes tends to make the fish 'mushy' to me) then grilled it.
    It was terrific!! - 6/4/10

  • The marinade was great, but if I made this dish again I think I would oven bake or broil it rather than cook it on the stovetop. My salmon was on the thick side and it took forever to get the middle cooked, to the point where the excess glaze was starting to burn in the pan. - 5/17/10
