    It was a quick meal to put together good for everyday. I used orange juice instead of lemon juice I was out of lemons and I felt the flavor was subtle but good will try with lemon and will also let marinade for 30 minutes I served asparagus steamed in the microwave with a little if the cooked marinade.

    I loved this recipe...I love salmon, and don't make it much because I haven't found a recipe deserving...although last night my sister and I made this...IT IS INCREDIBLE. We marinated the salmon for about 20 min. I also changed the technique with skin side up...I had to cook my salmon filet a bit longer as it was thicker on one end...we made the hollandaise sauce on page 136..it was devine...served with asparagas and a fresh mozz, tomato salad...It's definitely on my top 10 list for salmon.

    This recipe needs some work. It just is very bland. The glaze is really not a glaze because it is so thin and I wished the fish would have had more of a coating to it. I would not make this again. It just was disappointing to me.

    This is a wonderful spring recipe with a light refreshing taste. I followed the recipe and the salmon carmelized nicely under the broiler. I served it with a tossed mixed green salad, baked sweet potatoes and roasted asparagus. I will definitely make it again.

    This was easy and excellent. I made this Norwegian salmon and it was great. Would recommend for a company dinner. Just enough flavor without overcoming the a great fresh, buttery salmon taste.

    I made this recipe for the second time today. My husband and I really like it a lot. The first time I made it as directed, but didn't like the messy pan I had to clean up! Today, I cooked it on the grill. It was delicious. I do recommend that the fire not be too hot. I also cooked the filet skin side down first and advise marinating longer than 10 minutes. The only change I made was to use sesame oil instead of canola. This will be one of our regulars - it is so easy, simple, and delicious!

    I love that this dish is easy to make and all of the ingredients are those you typically have on hand. This dish takes about 15 minutes, as the salmon marinates for 10 mins and you cook it for about 5 mins. Even my dad who doesn't like salmon liked this! I'm making this as one of my regular recipes

    Good weeknight recipe. I didn't do the pan fry only the broiler and it was perfectly done. As others sugggested, I marinated the fish longer. About 30 minutes. This is not a strong tasting marinade but does add flavor.

    Marinade was too bland. Would not make again.

    Very bland. Needs more marinating time. Very easy though.

    This salmon preparation was simple and tasty. I marinated the salmon for about half an hour, and I didn't experience any blandness issues. The only problem I had with this recipe was that when I microwaved the glaze, it exploded in my microwave. Maybe it's because my salmon was skin on and the metal in the skin caused a bad reaction? Maybe my microwave is just too hot (entirely possible). But despite the mess, it was very good and we really enjoyed it. I served it with cumin spiced roasted potatoes and the Roasted Asparagus Salad with Pecorino, Lemon, and Olive Oil from this issue. The salad was killer and complemented the simply prepared salmon really well. Since the salmon wasn't the star of the dinner, it worked. I recommend a fancy vegetable side with this!

    This is a wonderful glaze. Marinate a little longer but the basic flavors are right on. My husband fishes the Columbia & Willamette Rivers & brings home fresh Chinook & Coho. This tastes great with both. However, the cooking technique does not work for these thicher bodied fish so it must be modified to work for them. The basic flavor is GREAT!

    I made the recipe as directed, except I let it marinate for about 45 minutes and it turned out great. Will definitely make again.

    too bland.

    Definitely needs to marinade a bit longer. next time will try 30 min. I broiled the fish and it cooked perfectly and did carmelize nicely.

    I made this for my husband and he loved it! It was so easy and it had great flavor!

  • springfever Posted: 03/23/09

    Extremely quick and easy with ingredients we're likely to have on hand, and this gives the salmon a nice taste. We grilled the fish instead of doing the two steps recommended, so didn't get the carmelized top but saved on cleanup time. Would definitely make again.

    I doubled the marinade and marinated for 30 minutes salmon turned out great! I would definitely make this again.

    My roomates & I were all extremely surprised at how much we liked this recipe. It was very easy to make and didn't take long at all. I'm making it for the second time tonight!! I did double the glaze recipe so there was more to distribute during the broiling process. It worked very well!

  • shmedly Posted: 04/08/09

    I liked this a lot and will make it again for sure! The lemon muted the strong salmon flavor, and the smell too I think. I did not change the ingredients at all, but I did change the technique: I browned the salmon skin-side up, then flipped it over skin-side down, added the reserved marinade, and let it cook on the stove, occasionally swirling the pan to stir the marinade and spooning some over the salmon as it cooked. The salmon stayed moist and the marinade reduced to a thick brown glaze. Yummy and easy!

  • emilycmt Posted: 04/10/09

    Bland. I gave it 2 stars because it was quick and the technique can be applied to other marinades. So many other good salmon recipes that I probably won't make this again. A fresh piece of salmon won't have a fishy taste and, if not overcooked, it's great cooked in a little fat with lemon juice and dill if you want more.

    I like this basic recipe and have made it a couple of times. One thing that did surprise me was that it said to reserve the used marinade. This is generally not a good idea and folks should separate a portion before marinading the fish. Also, because the marinade has vinegar and lemon, the fish shouldn't be marinated more than 30 min or it will start cooking ala ceviche. It's a good base though. I've also added ginger for a zing of flavor and minced garlic too. The cooking method and carmelizing of the sauce makes it very tasty!

    I absolutely love this recipe. The glaze is heavenly. My daughter concocted a green salad with maple syrup and cider vinegar and peaches to accompany the salmon. Very good.

    This is one of our go-to salmon recipes. We make salmon about once a week and when i don't have time to go to the store or find a new recipe, this is our back up plan. It's light and a little sweet, usually serve with a side of green beans and wild rice.

  • QueeTheBean Posted: 12/02/13

    Very easy to prepare--it turned out great and the family liked it a lot.

    Easy to make. The only change I made was I marinaded it for 1-2 hours.
