Adding a teaspoon or two of honey helps this glaze to "stick" better to the salmon and lock in the moisture. Otherwise this is a great base with a very original taste. Read More

i thought this was awesome. and so easy! i had to use red wine vinegar instead of balsamic (which i toned down w/ a touch of maple syrup) and grated dried ginger instead of fresh. i also added one small clove of minced garlic to (forgive me) kick it up a notch. i served it on a bed of cashew/ginger fried rice and drizzled the rest of the orange sauce on top with some toasted sesame seeds. fantabulous!

this recipe was great. the salmon was tender and juicy and had a great flavor. i reserved some of the o.j. mixture and added a touch of soy sauce and toasted sesame seeds to serve on the side with the salmon. Read More

This was the best salmon recipe I've made so far. I used a little cornstarch to thicken the OJ quicker. I followed a prior review and added soy sauce & sesame seeds to the remaining sauce. I'll definitely make again! Read More

I have a very limited time to cook dinner and this was incredibly fast and easy. While the OJ was cooling I made rice as side dish. Good recipe if you are not an expert cooking fish. Even if you overcook the salmon (like I did) the glaze is sauce-like and compensates for overcooking. Has a strong citrus taste so I recommend adding more ginger to counteract the sweetness. Will make again without a doubt! Read More

Delicious! I only made 2 pieces of salmon but used half the recipe so I had plenty of sauce for each piece. As per other reviews I added an overflowing T of honey and also a little toasted sesame oil. I also put all the sauce on at once and kept in the oven for 30 minutes. My husband said that it tasted like it came from a restaurant! Will definitely be making this again! Read More

Great recipe. I seared the salmon first on both sides with a little sesame oil and halved the cooking time. Turned it out wonderfully. Read More

Great! I used cup OJ cup red wine vinegar. 2 tsp ginger 3 tbs brown sugar 1 tbs of lemon juice dash of salt dash of parsley for color dash of cognac for flavor. Warm enough to mix the brown sugar. Marinate salmon about 20mins bake in sauce at 400 for 30 mins. The lemon juice gives a nice zing to complement the sweetness of the rest of the juice. Read More
