Number of Servings: 4


    1 1/2 C Brown Sugar
    6 TBLS Butter Melted
    3-6 TBLS Lemon Juice
    2 /4 tsp Dill weed
    3/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper
    1 Salmon Filet (1lb)
    Lemon Pepper seasoning (sprinkled)


Servings dependent on how much salmon used, for calorie calculation I put 1lb of salmon for 4 people. You could use up to 2lbs of salmon without changing sauce recipe. See my notes below about calories.

In a small bowl combine first 5 ingredients. Remove 1/2 c and put in sauce pan, set aside for now. Sprinkle salmon with lemon pepper. Coat grill with cooking spray before lighting. Place salmon on grill skin down. Grill covered for 5 min. Baste with the sauce that is not in the sauce pan. Grill 10-15 min more basting occasionally. Place reserved sauce (in sauce pan) on stove, simmer. Serve salmon with warm dipping sauce.

*Notes: I usually make 3/4 lb filet for 2 people and serve with veggies. I use our George Foreman Cooker to make this in the winter, or you can use the oven and bake, however, the brown sugar may smoke a bit. Also, I know the calories seem high on this, but most all of the brown sugar sauce that you marinate with falls off and is burned on the grill, and you only use a little for dipping, so I think the calories are an overestimation, how much though, I am unsure.
