Reviews for Firecracker Salmon Steaks
"It was okay."
"This recipe is a keeper for real. I loved the flavor combination. Spicy, tangy and sweet."
"I added some maple syrup to make the sauce a bit thicker because I baked it in the oven. 15 min @ 400F. Delicious!"
"My husband and father (a fish connoisseur) both agreed this was a keeper!"
"One of my favorite salmon dishes!! Wonderful!"
"Use 1/2 t ground ginger if you don't have fresh gingerroot."
