The first time I made this, it became my husband's favorite meal. That's really saying something because normally his favorite meals involve having most of a cow on his plate! —Tammy Hayden, Quincy, Michigan

Really liked the recipe! I made it according to the recipe except I heated the marmalade and lime in a saucepan separately. That way you could use what you wanted. Will definitely add lime zest to the sauce next time. Yes, a next time! :)

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 3, 2012

I did not have marmalade on hand, so I substituted juice of half an orange, sweetened with about 2 Tbsp honey. Maple syrup would also work. I wanted a thick sauce, so, after cooking the salmon, I took it out of the pan and kept warm. I added the juices and honey to the pan and cooked until thickened and reduced, about 2 minutes. I served the salmon over a bed of cranberry rice pilaf and poured the orange sauce over the whole dish. Excellent!
