    My favorite, go-to salmon recipe. It's the perfect balance of flavors and the perfect backdrop for the rosemary. It never fails to get devoured.

    5 Stars. Easy and very good. Use fresh Rosemary.

    It's a nice recipe if you like the strong flavor imparted by rosemary. As I've grown older I've learn to like it in small quantities. In this recipe I appreciate the attempt to add a twist to the tried and true sweet/salty flavors normally found in traditional salmon marinades which is why I tried it. Unfortunately I found the rosemary to feature a bit more prominently than I would prefer. I used fresh rosemary as the recipe called for though I would have preferred about 1/2 of the recipe volume. Moreover, there wasn't enough flavor from the other ingredients to better disguise the syrup. My 7 year old immediately called out the flavor at first bite.
