I was hesitant about the ingredient combo, but this is ridiculously good. I've been cooking salmon at 400 degrees, but this low & slow method is SO much better. It makes for perfectly moist but not undercooked fish every time. I make this about once a week now. I do use about half the soy sauce and am happy with the results.
I was afraid of the cinnamon in it, but I stuck to the recipe. I was out of ground ginger, but had bought two trays of California roll sushi from Giant Eagle and they always include lots of fresh ginger..so, I used that! It was fabulous! I was shocked with how moist and flavorful this was. I did finish mine with a 4 minute broil, too, skin side up, for that extra kick . Seriously, try this recipe. Easy, perfect and a way to have fish without that lemon-butter-dill standby.
I added a garlic clove that I crushed with my garlic press to the other ingredients in a plastic bag, mixing all well. I marinated the salmon filets for about 15 minutes prior to baking them. Magnificent! Will do this again.
I used less soy sauce then the recipe states, so that it wouldn't be too salty. My salmon was fairly thick, so it took longer then the 25 minutes, which is fine. This is definitely an easy, no fail recipe, however, so I will add it to my cook book for future reference. Thank you.
Fantastic recipe! I used a 1/2 sockeye fillet which I rubbed with sea salt then added the marinade just before hitting the oven. I withheld a small amount of the sauce to baste the fish with and switched to broil for the last 3-5 minutes. The savory aroma filled the house and the salmon was delicious! Added some buttered, garlic pasta and fresh veggies to complete the meal. This was a perfect quick fix dinner, thanks for sharing!!
This is fantastic, Steph. Loved the ginger and cinnamon additions!! Thanks for posting. Made for PAC Spring 07.
Thank you! I'm not a fish fan but I'm trying to develop a taste for it because it's healthy. This is the first time I've made salmon and it was fabulous. Bless you for this recipe. Loved the ginger and cinnamon, that's what initially caught my eye... well that and the easy, which it is.
Soy, ginger, garlic and oil are one of my standard recipes for salmon but always at the higher temperature. This was a wonderful surprise. I too used fresh ginger and garlic but otherwise followed the recipe. No oil! This was fabulously delicious and perfectly cooked. Hurray for new recipes.
This was my first time baking salmon and this recipe was easy and delicious! Made it mostly as is that the recipe calls, besides using a little less soy sauce, and it was flavorful and moist. Left it in the oven for about 5 minutes longer. Boyfriend loved it and it made my house smell fantastic so will totally make again.
Unbelievable! This Salmon was the best ever -- We eat out frequently and we eat salmon a lot- this was the best we have ever had- Marinated for 30 minutes and then baked -- Perfecto! Buono Apetite!
