I've made this recipe twice and run into the same problem both times. The cooking time for the salmon is way off. The fish needs to cook a lot more before going into the oven. Otherwise the "cook one minute or until done" turns into 10 minutes, and the sauce burns. I used the one inch thick fillets as recommended, just couldn't get the fish to cook properly. The sauce was yummy (before burning), so maybe I can get it work the third time if I further adjust the skillet cooking time.
