This is so good. The salmon doesn't taste fishy. I got this recipe in New Brunswick.

This was really good! It was a little dry, and would have been better with some kind of sauce. But, the flavor from the citrus was amazing!

I didn't have time to marinate this for long enough so the flavour was great but I believe it would even have been better had I marinated it for the full time suggested. I took a photo and the reason that my salmon appears to be blushing is that I grabbed red onions instead of white ones so the colour of the sauce is somewhat pinkish. I used boned, filleted salmon steaks and mostly followed the recipe to the letter, but instead of turning these over during the cooking time, I placed them in a small, shallow, metal baking tray, put it as close to the pre-heated grill/broiler (in the oven) as I dared and cooked it without turning for 12 minutes. It was completely cooked and we really liked the flavours... DH says a smidge more tabasco next time please... and there will be many more next times for this recipe at our dinner table believe me :) The flavours were there but subtle, it was salmon with a hint of a little extra... no it didn't smell fishy either, and the only negative I could really find was that I just wish my piece of salmon had been a little bigger LOL. Please see my rating system: an excellent 5 stars. Thanks!

Fabulous! I did make quite a few adjustments, not because the original wasn't good, but because of poor planning (what else is new, lol). I subbed additional orange juice and zest for the lemon because I needed a lemon for another dish. Out of Tabasco, so I added a scant teaspoon of red pepper flakes and didn't have a small kitchen onion on hand, so I grated one really big scallion. I marinated the steaks just over an hour (late guests) and grilled them over charcoal. Served with Shredded Green Beans with lime and Danny Kay's Lemon Pasta.
