    Delicious recipe! I forgot to marinade it so just baked it at 425 convection for 25 minutes (my pieces were thicker) and added some water to the dish halfway through cooking. It was moist and had tons of flavour, I loved the sweet/salty taste!

    A winner! Loved the taste of the marinated salmon. Hubby gave it a thumbs up, and that's a sure sign that I will make it again!

    I used larger pieces of fresh, skin-on salmon than the recipe called for; it took longer to cook but tasted great! The ginger taste was definitely present but a bit understated; it complimented the salmon very well!

    Although it was pretty good (we ate the whole thing), I prefer using Smart balance, garlic powder and Worchester sauce on ours..Good job, though!
