I'm always looking for a good salmon recipe because it's so good for us. But I'm the only one in the family who doesn't like salmon unless it's sushi :> I thought I had mirin, but didn't, so substituted amontillado(per the Food Substitutions Bible), and marinated it for about 1/2 hour. I left out the green onion too. The ones who like salmon loved it, and I liked it quite a bit.

I thought this was delicious! I also added the green onion to the marinade, which really added a nice touch to the taste. Afterwards, I spooned the marinade directly on the rice & set the fish on top. VERY YUMMY!

Quick and easy prep,but would marinate it longer next time. I used a lot of green onion, not just as garnish, but as a flavorful addition to the fish
