My first Cooksy recipe. Remarkably easy. I did the prep and then supervised my 11 yo as she did all of the cooking. As for flavor - delicious! Slightly sweet for my taste so when I do it again I might drop the brown sugar or maybe replace it with a half tsp of molasses. OJ, rosemary, shallots, and serrano peppers is a beautiful combination that doesn’t overpower the salmon. I don’t usually care for sun dried tomatoes (and almost “forgot” them) but found them to fit nicely. Overall, terrific first Cooksy experience. I will definitely return to this recipe in the future.
