Amaretto Oriental Salmon

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by lauralie41

This recipe is adapted from and calls for Disaronno Amaretto. Salmon steaks can also be used instead of the fillets and a nice garnish would be lemon slices and fresh asparagus. Marinating time in the refrigerator is included in preparation time.

Great, bold flavor for salmon. I did use the Disaronno amaretto (check at your local liquor store to see if they sell this in small 2 oz. bottles..I bought 2 small bottles for @ $4.00 and it was more than enough). I particulaly liked the flavor of the sesame oil in this dish. I highly recommend serving this alongside a rice dish. The sauce flavor is strong and rice would balance the flavors out nicely. Thank you for the recipe! :-)
