Reviews for Honey-Orange Marinated Salmon
"We were expecting the flavor to be bolder, but it was good. Bake time was reduced to 23 minutes to avoid drying out the salmon. Nice change of pace over our usual baked salmon."
"This was delicious. We prefer our salmon just slightly rare, so I only cooked it 20 minutes and it was perfect. Wonderful blend of flavors."
"I do not care for salmon but this was very good"
"I made this tonight for company and was it ever a hit! WOW, just wonderful. The only thing I did extra was add a couple of Tbsp of Panda Express Orange Sauce, which has just a little kick to it. This has got to be my favorite salmon dish of all time. Thank you for sharing this!"
"My family really enjoyed this recipe. It was full of flavor without being over bearing. It's a keeper!! :D"

"Can this be microwave?"
"Fran -No, don't reduce it by cooking. It is a 'lite' soy sauce; I use Kikkoman . On the label, it states,'Less Sodium Soy Sauce). Hope this helps.sedwards"
"1st ingredient is a soy sauce that has less sodium content, it is called "reduced-sodium soy sauce" found at all grocery stores."
