Yummy recipe! I followed the recipe exactly. When I broiled it the topping started to burn so I put the oven on bake at 350 degrees and baked the salmon instead. The fish took about 10 minutes and was wonderful. We really enjoyed the flavors. We will definitely make this again.

Yummy! We love fish in our house and this was a excellent recipe. I love the nuttiness of the sesame seeds and the tangy of the orange. Served with Recipe #396253. Thanks for posting Boomette
