Reviews for Asian Citrus Salmon
"This is one of the only ways I will eat salmon!"
"I didn't like this."
"With the first bite, our taste buds came alive! What a great and pleasing combination of flavors. Instead of broiling, I baked the fillets at 350 for 20 minutes along with some vegetables I was roasting; they were slightly more done than I wanted, but this is another way of preparing them."
"Wonderful, my whole family including teenage boys loved this!"
"I am traditionally not a huge salmon fan, but this was the BEST salmon I have ever eaten in my life! The blend of flavors is perfect!"
