Brown Sugar Honey Salmon11

Well…. starting on Jan 2nd (because I had all the left overs on Jan 1st) I have started to try and eat better.  I usually do good through the year except on holidays and this December we had a lot of parties and junk. It is REALLY hard for me to pass of delicious stuff. Ha Ha. I’m excited to get back on the band wagon. This Brown Sugar Honey Salmon is one of my new favorite ways to eat salmon! Hope you like it as much as I did!

    I find the cooking instructions very confusing. First of all, where did the pineapple come from?! I thought only pineapple juice? Then, why am I spraying oil on a baking pan but then I'm putting salmon on a lined cookie sheet pan? This is a great recipe but the instructions are so unclear. This is very frustrating. Please, do take care when writing out the recipe.
  2. So sorry ladies, at first try was to make it with pineapple, but I liked it without better. So I omitted it from the ingredients but forgot to take it out of the instructions. So sorry about that. With the spray, whenever you are cooking with brown sugar it will caramelize to your salmon, to your pan, to your foil. That is why I always spray my foil. It just makes clean up a lot easier for me. Especially if you salmon doesn't have skin, then I HIGHLY suggest spraying a little but so you will be able to eat it easier. Hope this answers your questions. Sorry about the confusion.
