Reviews for Glazed Asian-Style Salmon Fillet
"I tried this recipe last night and was not disappointed. I love that I always have these ingredients on hand. This came together quickly and packed a great flavor punch. Instead of grilling I baked the salmon for about 13 minutes at 425F. I will certainly make this again."
"This recipe gets rave reviews everytime I make. It's become a grilling staple, if we're having a cookout with plenty of guests this will be on the grill. People who don't like salmon LOVE this. I've replaced the crushed red pepper flakes with Cayenne, gets the hot a little more even"
"Did this on the stove top in a pan. I also used fresh ginger. I cooked the salmon skin side down 1st and let that side cook for about 6 minutes on medium heat, then added 1 tbsp of the glaze to each piece of salmon( I only cooked 2 pieces of salmon)then flipped it, turned down the heat a little, and cooked it another 6 minutes. I removed the salmon, then wiped out the pan to remove the little bit of fat in the pan, then added the rest of the glaze, and added 1 tbsp of butter to finish out the sauce. This made a great glaze to serve over rice and the salmon."
