    I wasn't sure how I would like this combination of ingredients, but this recipe is *awesome* !! Made it exactly as written, served over brown rice with grilled spiced zucchini. I'll definitely make this one again

    We have eaten salmon at least once a week for a decade, and this is definitely my favorite recipe so far. I wasn't able to use a cedar plank, but it was great just broiled. I subbed cilantro for the chives, and like another reviewer, I'm sure I used more red pepper than called for (didn't measure). I used clementines instead of oranges, and I left the sections whole - they were the perfect size and the taste was fantastic. The recipe is easy and fast, the baste is delicious, and the salsa is inspired - bright, rich, and sweet.

    I bought really fresh salmon at our local fish market and it was the BEST!! The whole recipe was greate. The cedar plank method works so well on the grill because you can get the salmon just perfect, we like it pink in the middle. This was melt in your mouth and the baste added a nice but not overwhelming flavor. I cut up the orange sections and added a little more red pepper than called for. I made the whole recipe but used a 1# skinless piece of salmon for 2 of us. I can't imagine that the baste or the salsa would have been enough for 6 people. Company worthy!!

    Awesome recipe. I only made enough salmon for two, but kept the salsa amount the same. It is easy, quick and super tasty. The longest part of the entire process is waiting for the plank to soak. Super flavorful and very light. We love it!
