    Beautiful BC's Note:

    This is a great recipe for when a light flavourful meal is what you want. It's quick & easy enough for weekday meals and nice enough for company. It's a recipe I adapted from one found in the Costco Connection by Karen MacNeil.

      Oh my, this was really, really good!! I had 500 g of salmon fillet and used half of the marinade - turned out gorgeously flavourful and spicy! Made just enough vinaigrette for two servings (2 tbls of olive oil, 1 ts of balsamic vinegar and so on), and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner! Thank you so much for sharing, this will definitely get made again!

      WOW, another great recipe from Beautiful BC for those of us who enjoy a little zip in our food! I cooked my 1 kg salmon fillet whole, using 1/2 the spice mixture, and the fish was moist and delicious. I didn't have any sesame oil, and substituted canola. The leftovers will make a great cold salad for lunch tomorrow...there is plenty of dressing left, and I expect it can be used with any green salad. I liked the dressing very much, but the star of the meal was the salmon.

      A nice and different way to eat salmon. I quartered the recipe, using just a dash of cayenne. I enjoyed this on the salad. Thanks!
