Very good. We do not usually like steamed or poached salmon as well as we like it grilled or broiled, but we would make this again. I doubled the amounts for the marinade so we would have a little extra sauce. Served with fresh steamed asparagus and steamed rice (made with grated carrot and grated onion.
