"Excellent recipe! I didn't think it would be that amazing but the previous reviews convinced me to try it. It melted in your mouth as you ate it! And the sauce really was awesome :)"

"We had mixed reviews on the glaze. I loved it and drizzled it over my vegetables. Hubby said it was just okay. This was the first time I had made salmon in the oven, and it cooked much more evenly than in a skillet."

"My husband took one bite and said "This is heaven" I loved it just as much! The glaze is so tasty I am thinking of trying it on grilled chicken and steak. Will definitely make again. Thanks"

"I wasn't really sure how this would taste. My fillet was about 12 ounces, so I cut down the recipe for sauce and just eyeballed everything. Then I forgot about it while it was reducing, and there wasn't much glaze by the time I remembered it. However, it was absolutely delicious! I mean, it was really, really good, some of the best I have ever made. I did have to cook it longer because I had one large fillet instead of several smaller ones. I think the key to the good taste, though, was that I did not overcook it (which I have a bad habit of doing). I can't wait to buy more salmon so that I can make it again."
