Reviews for Walnut Ginger Salmon
Sort By :
"This was very tasty, although 11 minutes under my broiler was not enough to cook the salmon through, leaving me with burnt nuts on top. I used fresh grated ginger instead of powdered and pecans instead of walnuts because I had them on hand. I'll definitely make this again, will just cook it for the time I usually cook salmon."
"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."
"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!"
