Flavorful Sauce that is wonderful with grilled foods

I love salmon and am always looking for new recipes that feature it. I used zucchini and yellow squash and it was a hit. The smoked paprika is the star of this sauce and it pairs perfectly with flame grilled fish or poultry. Next time I am going to double the recipe for the sauce so there is some leftover for the next day.

Fast & Easy Preparation
EASY Delicious meal

This meal was very quick and easy to make, a great weeknight meal. The sauce was pretty good on the zucchini, and delicious on the salmon. The only change I made was that I didn't add salt, I used Mrs. Dash instead. The sauce was just a bit bland, so next time I think I might try cayenne pepper for a little kick. And I definitely recommend doubling the sauce amount. I made only two servings of the zucchini and salmon, but four servings of the sauce, and we barely had enough.

Quick, Easy, Healthy

Yum yum yum! Used red wine vinegar and served with a baguette. I made double the amount of sauce and I was glad I did

Delicious if recipe is followed exactly

This is the first time I have ever cooked Salmon and I was a little timid. But this was so simple and easy. And it was incredibly delicious. This will be a once a week meal from now on.


We loved this dish. The sauce was super and I'll be making this again.
