The marinade was absolutely perfect. I wasn't crazy about the sauce however. I think the fish sauce came through a little too strong. Next time I'll try cutting it back by half in the sauce.
I used lemon juice and 3 tb of the fish sauce. I left the marinade on the fish and broiled it, then drizzled the sauce over it. It was great. Will definitely do this again.
I, too, reduced the fish sauce (am watching my sodium intake). And due to inclement weather here in the Great Northwest, I cooked the marinated salmon on a shallow-rimmed, thick cedar plank meant for the kitchen oven (as opposed to the thin-type of cedar plank meant to burn/smoke over an outdoor fire or grill). It was wonderful! I really enjoyed the unique flavor of this dish, and a I can't wait to prepare salmon this way on my charcoal Webber grill for family and friends. Thank you for sharing this outstanding recipe, GaylaJ!
Yummmmmy! My husband loves this recipe. I made several delicious salmon recipes and he chooses this as his favorite. For the sauce, I might suggest reducing the fish sauce by a bit. Thanks for a great recipe!
Delicious! I only marinated about 20 minutes, but had made the marinade earlier so the flavors had a chance to develop. I just poured the sauce over the finished fish before serving.
What a wonderful way to prepare salmon. The marinade adds so much flavor and I think even a quick marinating time would be fine. I marinated for about 24 hours and the flavors were very good. The sauce is a nice compliment to the fish--the fish sauce I used was very salty so I might use a tablespoon less next time. Thanks, Gayla.
