    I made this tonight only I used Agave syrup instead of brown sugar. I cut up ring pineapple from a small can and added it to the sauce. I also use tamari instead of soy sauce. Not really big changes. It was the best salmon I have had in 10 years. Next time I may add a little grated ginger. Mmmmmmm! : )

    This is very good. I do feel like it could benefit from some more seasonings, though, as another reviewer mentioned--some pepper and onion come to mind. The glaze is thin, and so baked into the fish, which was wonderful, but I figured it would be nice to have a thickened glaze to spoon on top of the fish when it was done, as well as on the wild rice blend I cooked to go with the salmon. So when I mixed up the glaze ingredients, I increased all three of them, and after I spooned what was needed onto the salmon on the baking sheet, I put the rest into a small saucepan, along with some pineapple tidbits (I got the juice from their can) and heated it over high heat while the fish was baking to reduce it to a thicker glaze. This was wonderful topping both the salmon and the rice.

    Just made this for dinner tonight. Perfect terriaki glaze. Though it took a little longer than 25 min to cook but my oven sucks. Definitely a keeper.

    I found this too be very tasty and my husband liked it too. I will cook it again tomorrow, but will have to improvise orange pineapple juice instead. I'm never afraid to try something new or switch ingredients with something I have on hand that will mingle well with the other ingredients. No need to look further for a salmon recipe. Thanks!

    My family found this pretty tasteless, which is a shame considering the cost of salmon!
