MY REVIEW

"This recipe was quick and easy to prepare and it tasted delicious. I prepared the sauce by stirring the ingredients together in a bowl and then pouring it over the salmon and baking the salmon until it flaked easily. I did not have rice vinegar so I substituted white wine vinegar. As with most recipes, I left out the salt. I will definitely make this again."

"Our favorite salmon dish - simple, elegant and delicious! We prefer broiling without baking first to avoid overcooking. Place 4" from heat; broil 7-9 min, spooning heated glaze over during final min. This is a great recipe for converting non-salmon eaters!"

"I've made this dish many times and it continues to be a family favorite. Salmon is a documented super food and I serve it once a week so I'm always on the look out for different ways to prepare it. This recipe is quick and easy to prepare, but results in high praises at the dinner table. I generally serve it with "Roasted Dill Potatoes" also found on this web site and steamed broccoli . This is better than anything I've ever eaten in a restaurant!"
