MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 14, 2014

The next time I make it I will double the marinade except for the ginger, I will leave ginger as is or only put in 1/2 tsp more. Excellent dish but not all the fish was covered with marinade, which is why I would double it.

For someone is usually intimidated by cooking fish. It was very easy and came out the first time trying this. Definitely a keeper!

Very nice flavour, but don't use too thick a piece of salmon. Also, watch the nuts carefully---only 1 minute or they'll burn.

MY REVIEW

Excellent easy, healthy recipe. Start with best salmon available. Fresh, of course, is ultimate, but frozen wild Pacific Northwest red-sockeye, silver-coho or king-chinook offer outstanding flavor, texture and are available throughout US. Avoid chum, farm-raised, etc. Good cuts or fresh salmon will give you full enjoyment of many fine meals such as this one!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 7, 2011

This is really yummy. I'm always looking for good and quick recipes for salmon. This really fit the bill. I could stand a little less ginger or none at all, but it was good as is. Went well with the quinoa dish, too. A great gluten-free dinner!
