This is very good, but the cooking time is off. We left ours in the oven for only 12 minutes and it was still overdone.

This was a seriously tasty piece of salmon. I only made two steaks because there are only two of us but I used the full marinade and then boiled down what was left over and drizzled over some of the veggies I served with it and that was lovely. I used tamari instead of soy and splenda brown sugar blend because they were what I had on hand and they worked great. I probably gave it about 3 1/2 in the fridge and it was beautifully tender when cooked. Made for Healthy Choices tag.

This is so easy and full of flavor. I made the full recipe for 3 6 oz. fillets, and there was plenty. I marinated 2 hours and cooked 400 for 13 minutes, because that is how I usually cook small salmon fillets. It turned out great! Thanks herby!
