Wow, I really loved this marinade on the salmon. I do a similar marinade with soy sauce, honey, and garlic. The addition of the sesame oil and ginger (I used 1/4 tsp of ground ginger in place of ginger paste) was really tasty. Served over the green beans, the dinner was just as scrumptious to look at as to eat. Now that I have hoisin sauce, I will definitely be making this dish again!! Thanks Rita L :-D
