My husband said he loved this, and my 2 1/2 year old, who started refusing salmon 6 months ago, ate a huge portion. In a rush to make dinner I used a 1+ lb fillet, poked w/ a fork, laid mandarins on top & drizzled 1/3 the marinade, then more at 10 & 20 min., baked for 30 min. I didn't have green onions and used ginger powder instead of paste. I can't wait to make this again and follow the recipe, I'm sure it will be incredible!
