    Recipe works well with either pink or red salmon fillets. Recipe developed by myself while experimenting with combinations of liquid flavours and herbs. My preference is fillets rather than salmon steaks; however, both cuts of salmon work well in this recipe. Preparation time does not include marinating time. Ingredient variations include: ginger, cilantro, chopped parsley, teriyaki sauce, balsamic vinegar

      Making this recipe was a purely selfish act on my part, since I am the only one in the house at the moment who eats fish. I am so pleased with myself that I decided to make this salmon! I mixed the marinade in a Ziploc back and let the salmon sit in there for a whole day in the fridge while I was at work. At suppertime it took just minutes to finish it off, and the smell coming out of the pan was amazing! The best part about this selfish act of mine was that I had enough left over for lunch the next day, but not enough to share with my jealous coworkers. This is some of the best salmon I've made myself in a long time! Thanks for the recipe!

      We love salmon & this recipe did not disappoint. I used skinless fillets for this & it turned out great. We loved the sauce. Will definitely 'make again!'
