although salmon is definitely a healthy food, brown sugar is not a sugar-free ingredient therefore this recipe should not be considered for dieters interested in reducing sugar consumption.

absolutely delicious!! ylsolis1, if you want something a little bit healthier, try using dill. it is very sweet, but it is an herb.

Salmon is great but a 1/2 cup of brown sugar would be verboten for an Atkins dish. Any individual trying to keep their blood sugar down should avoid this one.
You only get 2.6 gr of salmon AND sugar to boot? Sounds good, but not for Atkineers. I would still be hungry...
Good for weight watchers! :) I figured it at 5 points!
