"easy, quick, and yummy! I did not have sesame oil and just used vegetable oil and it was perfect. My husband's new favorite way to eat salmon.

"This dish is awful. It is WAY too salty. The first time I made it, I just eliminated the salt, and it was ridiculously salty. The next time, I eliminated the salt and only used one fourth of the soy sauce. That calmed down the salty taste, but it didn't taste very good anyways. This is certainly not a recipe that I will repeat."

"This dish is fabulous, if salty. I used low sodium soy sauce, but even then with the sesame oil it had a salt kick. But, my family LOVES it; I make it monthly with no complaints."
