This marinade is full of bold flavors. A little spicy. A little sweet. It really packs a punch.

This was an easy and absolutely delicious dish! Very bold flavors! The only deviation I made from the recipe was to bake the salmon and some of the marinade (350F for 13 minutes) in aluminum foil rather than grill it. I will add all of the marinade for the salmon to bake in the next time. My daughter thought the sauce had a great kick and wanted more. Read More

This was okay but I don't think I will be making it again. The vinegar taste was pretty strong to me if I were to make a change I would reduce the amount of vinegar used. Read More

This recipe was great! I cut back a little on all of the spicy ingredients since I do not usually enjoy spicy food; however I will definitely add the full amount next time. This recipe is full of flavor and was a hit with my boyfriend who isn't a fish lover. We sealed the salmon in non-stick tin foil and grilled it with some of the marinade inside. Read More

This is a pretty good marinade. I'm not giving it a full 5 stars because I thought it could be thicker to create a nicer glaze on the salmon. Next time I'll add more honey to achieve that. I only marinated my salmon for 30 minutes and it came out pretty flavorful. Before putting the salmon in the marinade I reserved some for glazing while I grilled the salmon. I grilled it over medium heat without turning it skin side down. It turned out really great. A keeper for sure! My husband said a couple of times that this was the best salmon I've made and I have tried quite a few recipes over the years. Read More

This was a big hit with my husband and older kids. I served it with Black Bean and Rice Salad. I made a few modifications: I used 1/4 c. cider vinegar no sugar and 1/4 t. salt. It reminded me of the island food we've had in the Caribbean--very fresh-flavored and light. My friend is having a bumper crop of apricots so we had a few of those on the side. DELICIOUS! Read More

I made a few adjustments to this but the family loved it. I substituted balsamic vinegar for the apple cider & used agave nectar to replace the honey. Also after I cooked the fish I reduced the remaining marinade on the stove top for about 15 minutes & it made a great glaze to add with the ginger & spice flavors becoming much more pronounced.

I only used half a cup of the vinegar even that was a little much. next time I think i'll only use 1/4 cup. I didn't have orange zest so I used a tbs. of orange juice instead. good but not great. Read More

This was so yummy! It looked to be a lot of marinade so I just scaled down the amount of ingredients. I also felt that much sugar was unnecessary after the honey so I just sprinkled a little on. Roasted at 400 in the oven boiled the marinade and used as a sauce. Next time I might try baking it in the marinade. Sprinkled fresh cilantro on at the end. Delicious! Read More

FABULOUS recipe! My husband and I LOVE flavor... the more the better. This marinade had tonnes of flavor. Our family loved it. Our BBQ wasn't working so I actually baked it in the oven and it turned out great. It will definitely make our family recipe book! Read More
