Ginger, garlic powder and green onion blend nicely in an easy marinade that gives pleasant flavor to salmon. We also like to use this versatile mixture when grilling chicken, but we've found it tastes even better when marinated in the fridge overnight. —Dan Strumberger, Farmington, Minnesota

"Delicious salmon recipe! My whole family loved this dish. I broiled the fish, rather than grilling it. Also, I used cilantro in place of green onion."

"Really delicious. I used pineapple juice instead of orange juice. I might try to use reduced sodium soy sauce next time, however."
