Sweet and Sour Salmon

Salmon is a wonderful thing! I love salmon done cedar plank style on the bbq. I love salmon baked in the oven. I love salmon sandwiches. One of my favourite restaurants in Markham is called Fire and Ice. I often order the sweet and sour salmon dish when I am there.

I came home one day and decided to make my own recipe. Here it is.
