I was just searching for this recipe and found it already on the Zaar. This is very good as directed, like others have commented I would marinade for a little longer and I think the addition of garlic would be nice.

This is a great recipe. I added frseh garlic to marinate and also fresh garlic, a little butter, and a little balsamic vinegar to spinach.

Yum! This salmon is really good. I made this as directed, but marinated it for about 4 hours. We liked the seasoning mix, but next time, I think I would cut the cinnamon in half - seemed like a little too much to us. The flavor of the orange zest and juice was really good. Thanks Heather for a great salmon dish. Made for PAC Fall 2008.
