    Easy, quick, and yummy! I did not have sesame oil and just used vegetable oil and it was perfect. My husband's new favorite way to eat salmon.~ Theresa

    This dish is awful. It is WAY too salty. The first time I made it, I just eliminated the salt, and it was ridiculously salty. The next time, I eliminated the salt and only used one fourth of the soy sauce. That calmed down the salty taste, but it didn't taste very good anyways. This is certainly not a recipe that I will repeat.

    This dish is fabulous, if salty. I used low sodium soy sauce, but even then with the sesame oil it had a salt kick. But, my family LOVES it; I make it monthly with no complaints.
