I love this type of marinade and this did not let me down. I halved the recipe and marinated for a couple hours. Sauteed in pan and used the marinade for a glaze. Thanks for posting! Made for 123 Hit Wonders.

Very tasty result, even though I only had 1 hour to marinate.

This was wonderful. I love salmon - I marinated several fillets for a day, then put them on the George Foreman Grill and put them back in the fridge. I then top a Romaine lettuce salad with them and have a great lunch! Thanks!
