    We were expecting the flavor to be bolder, but it was good. Bake time was reduced to 23 minutes to avoid drying out the salmon. Nice change of pace over our usual baked salmon.

    This was delicious. We prefer our salmon just slightly rare, so I only cooked it 20 minutes and it was perfect. Wonderful blend of flavors.

    I made this tonight for company and was it ever a hit! WOW, just wonderful. The only thing I did extra was add a couple of Tbsp of Panda Express Orange Sauce, which has just a little kick to it. This has got to be my favorite salmon dish of all time. Thank you for sharing this!

    This is delicious. I served it for Christmas and it was the hit of the evening. My husband loves it so I've already cooked it a number of times sine then.
