Very good! The sauce was delicious, to us, it was like a teriyaki sauce. The next time I make this, I will cut out the butter entirely (sub with additional liquid if needed), or just use a little butter on the fish directly before spooning the sauce on top. The butter in my sauce separated out. Easy to make. Made for the Vivacious Violets for ZWT7.

Outrageously delicious!!! I used wild caught steelhead for this. I made it exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. The sauce was spectacular and the fish was perfectly cooked after 5 minutes in the oven. I served it with tossed salad and jasmine rice. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT7- Pacific Islands.

Outstanding!!! I loved the sauce as did the rest of us. I only cooked skin side of the salmon in a pan to crisp it real good, then divided the 2 tablespoons of sauce over the fillets and placed them flesh side down in the oven for just a tad longer, as I did not turn over to cook for the additional 2 min's. This is just our preference we love the crispy skin on salmon and just wanted to keep it that way. Apart from that small adjustment to suit our tastes, I made as is. The sauce is gorgeous and oh so moreish, this is a superb salmon recipe and one we will enjoy often. I served ours over stir-fried vegetables and it was great.
