This is one of my hubby's favorite ways for me to fix salmon. He loves the taste and the presentation is also nice. This recipe is a keeper.

Very good. I substituted fresh ginger for the ground ginger, but otherwise made as directed. Will make again.

I'm so glad to have rediscovered this wonderful recipe! I've been a Taste of Home reader for almost 20 years; and am now a volunteer field editor. This delicious and simple way to dress up salmon was one of the first ToH salmon recipes I tried out on the family. Even the kids loved it! Let's be honest, ladies and gentlemen; farmed salmon is pretty tasteless. The combination of the ginger, soy sauce, brown sugar, and mustard give the fish a lot of zing. And the walnuts add a nice crunchy texture. Definitely five stars!

I have had disappointment with fish recipes, in the past. The only flavor I usually get is the fish itself. That's not true with this recipe. The salmon was flavored perfectly. I caught myself going back for seconds. I'm so happy to have found a really good compliment to Salmon! Thank you!
