My wife is vegetarian and does not eat any fish or vegetables. She is 4 months pregnant right now, however, and has been craving fish. She has eaten Tuna Fish on sandwiches and grew tired of this quickly, still leaving her with a fish craving. I made this recipe for her and she loved it. I marinated for 1/2 hour and then wrapped it in foil with the marinade and baked at 375 for 45 minutes and it turned out great! I could still taste the salmon and the marinade complimented it well.
Well I did this a little different. I baked it instead of grilling,and used Mahi-Mahi instead of Salmon, but the result was the same. Fantastic, my husband was thrilled! I will be using this recipe again!!!
Wonderful. A big hit. I followed the tin foil advice and it came out great, but I opened the foil for the last five minutes to brown the top. Buy an extra pound of salmon and make some for sandwiches the next day; my leftovers that had been sitting in their juices in the fridge overnight were almost better than the hot dish!
