This was a very easy recipe to prepare and good for a weeknight meal. We marinated almost an hour and grilled on the BBQ. Served with grilled potatoes and grilled broccoli rabe. Wish the taste of the marinade came through a little more in the prepared dish, which I was surprised about. Maybe other reviewers did not have that problem? Anyway, as I said, it was easy and it was enjoyed. Thanks!

Used this marinade on 2 nice fresh wild caught deep red sockeye fillets from Costco. Wonderful on the grill! Thank you for a quick keeper marinade!

I substituted chili paste with garlic for the hot chili paste as that was what I had on hand. Wonderful taste and not hot, just spicy and just the right amount. I loved this and will make again soon. Made for ZWT4.

I made this salmon but I put it in a ziplock bag with the marinade. And I let it marinate near 1 hour. This was delicious. Thanks Beautiful BC. Made for the Babes of ZWT4

Yummy, yummy this was a great recipe! Love the sesame oil and hot chili paste. I was grilling tonight so threw this on the grill and all I had to do was take a picture! Thank you! Made in Canada for ZWT4.

Great topping for salmon. I make a lot of salmon (every Wednesday at my home) and this is one of the best recipes I've tried in the Asian genre. I scaled down to 1 serving and very much enjoyed the mild-tasting fish with the rich, caramelized, intensely savoury topping. Good job!

Besides this being such an joy to put together, this salmon has a wonderful "spice" kick that marries perfection with salmon. The recipe author is right, because this is *Not* hot, but rather full of taste with a nice kick. I used Sombel Oelek as suggested and followed this exactly as written. You couldn't ask for a more delightful, tasty, and pleasure to eat healthful salmon fillet. Since it was just Dennis and myself I easily reduced the portion and ingredients downsized and used Chili Paste With Garlic for the hot chili paste. Everything was perfect and the salmon broil up to have lovely "crystalized* top. I broiled my little salmon fillets for exactly 4 minutes per side and wouldn't of let it go more then that. Served with farm asparagus and a rice pilaf. Perfect, and thank you Beautiful BC!!

DH and I absolutely loved this! I cooked it on the grill and came out perfect. I almost used a hot chili sauce instead of paste but I caught myself in time. I used Uncle Chen's chili paste. This has a nice bite to it but it's not hot. Very flavorful dish. This is going in my 2008 top 20 cookbook. Very yummy. Thanks Beautiful BC for posting.

Was very good. I didn't have hot chili paste, so I used chili garlic sauce and used around 2 teaspoons and basted the fish with what was left of the sauce.
