"One of our favorite recipes! I marinate it longer and use sesame oil instead of canola oil (and skip the sesame seeds). It always comes out perfect!"

"This is a great grilled salmon recipe. We make without the sesame seed and onion and it turns out great."

"Served with yellow rice and asparagus. Great success. My pickiest eater said they would reheat the leftover salmon. Great base for future marinades."
