Calypso Recipe for Salmon

Calypso Salmon Recipe

I have a wonderful Salmon Recipe for you all.  Now, I’m not a huge fan of fish, and have family that isn’t either, but they LOVE this recipe.  Originally this was a bourbon glazed salmon recipe, but I never feel like paying for bourbon since I don’t drink it, so I played with the recipe and changed it a bit, made my own recipe and called it Calypso Salmon.  The ingredients in this remind me of the tropics, so that’s where the name came from.  This marinade has brown sugar, soy sauce, fresh grated ginger and lime juice and the combination makes for an AMAZING marinade and glaze for Salmon.

Salmon was on sale last week at Publix and is on sale this week at Winn Dixie, so I thought it would be a great recipe to make.  This is one of my family’s favorite meals that I make and they were thrilled on New Year’s when I told them that was on the menu for dinner that night!  This is a very easy recipe to make.
