August Recipe of the Month - Finn's Salmon from Susan Mallery's Only Mine

In Only Mine, Finn, the hero, was an Alaskan pilot who was furious with his twin brothers because they left college a semester before graduation.  What did they do?  They went to Fools Gold, CA to star in a dating reality show and their angry brother followed them.  I had a feeling that Finn resided in Southeast Alaska and it reminded me of an old recipe that was shared with me years ago. 

An old boyfriend of mine, after high school became an Alaskan fisherman.  This is Ed's recipe, a sauce to put on salmon, whether you barbecue it or make it in the oven.

Ed's Barbecue Salmon Sauce

3/4 cup melted butter
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 cloves crushed garlic
1-1/2 Tablespoon soy
1 T Dry mustard
1/3 cup Sherry
3 Tablespoon Ketchup

Melt butter, add ingredients, simmer 10 minutes.  Pour over fish, skin side down and place in foil boat, sprayed with PAM.  Can be barbecued or baked in oven.  Ready when fish flakes.
