"This salmon dish is amazing! I was invited for dinner the other night and this was the main course. The red pepper flakes give off plenty of heat, but it's nicely balanced by the brown sugar and other ingredients. The sauce is heavenly!I asked for the recipe, and my host said she got it out of the latest issue of "Bon Apetit" which I had sitting on my coffee table! This comes from the "Saucebox" restaurant in Portland, Oregon."

"If you can have love at first bite than this has to be it for salmon fans! Our family loves salmon and this was a unique way to serve it. A little tangy, a little spicy, a little sweet. We ate it with mashed potatoes and a generous grinding of black pepper."
"We really loved this dish and I will definitely be making this again and again. I didn't give it five stars because I had a couple of things that I will change next time. It was very salty and it was because I didn't have my low sodium soy sauce on hand. Next time, I will be sure to use low sodium to cut back on the saltiness. Also, I won't cook the spinach in so much butter. In fact, I think I'll use a tsp of olive oil with a small garlic clove sauteed in it and then add the spinach to wilt. All in all, though, this recipe is superb and was absolutely yummy!!! Thanks for sharing!!"
"Thank you very much for sharing this recipe! I cut it in half, to make four servings, and all four of us thought it was incredible. I think we could have finished four more servings! I did prepare the original amount of spinach listed, because 1.5 oz per person just didn't seem like enough. Rounding out my meal was some wild rice and french bread. All said, I do believe this is the best recipe I have taken off 'zaar yet!"
"Tonight's meal was a real winner, thank you!"
"very simple recipe, doesn't require any fancy ingredients or equipment.
excellent easy way to prepare salmon."
"I had some limes and a piece of salmon I needed to use so stumbled across this easy and tasty recipe. The salmon was cooked perfectly and the sauce was delicious. It was on the salty side though so perhaps next time I would use low salt soy sauce. I'd also use more chilli but that's because I'm a glutton for punishment. It would be good with lots of sides (rice, noodles, more vegies such as bok choy etc) and you could probably use it as a stir fry sauce with other meat/tofu and vegies too. I just had it with spinach. To wilt the spinach, if you don't want to use so much butter, you can just put it straight in a saucepan, cover and cook for about 3 minutes and the steam will give enough moisture so the spinach won't burn."
"AMAZING !! I think this is my favourite way to cook salmon ever ! You are absolutely right , the sauce is to die for. I served this with basmati rice and a cucumber salad....Yum."
"Very pleasant! Thank you for posting :)"
"I wondered why there weren't more pics posted of this recipe, with all of the great reviews it gets. Now I know. It all gets eaten up before anyone can take a picture! (Ours did.)"
"It's very good, it's easy, it's pretty (particularly with some chopped scallions on it! For me, that means it is a 5 star keeper. I served it with fried rice. I can hardly wait for my father-in-law to come over. He lives on salmon and spinach."
"OMG!! The best way to cook salmon. I was so bored with salmon and now have discovered how to finally enjoy it! Try this one! Thank you for posting."
"Wow! This was awesome. It was perfect for our hubby and I because our honeymoon was in Bali/Indonesia...and, we loved it! Will make this again and again."
"I'm re-reviewing this recipe because I have made it so many times and it is so delicious! We really love this recipe and have tried the sauce over chicken as well. The flavors are so perfect and the wilted spinach is sooo good with it. Most of the time I serve with baby red potatoes but my husband has loved the sauce over rice as well... and if I make rice, I always double the sauce. TRY THIS RECIPE!!! :) Thanks, again!"
"I really enjoyed this recipe. Delicious, not too hard to prepare, and it makes you look like a pro. :D Thanks so much!"
"This dish was fabulous. I served it with wild rice and Avocado and Prawns in Wasabi (recipe #19943). The next time I will sprinkle toasted sesame seeds on top. It was pretty enough to serve for a dinner party. Hubby said it was like something you would get at a restraunt. Thanks for posting."
"This was the 1st recipe I followed from recipezaar.com & it was great! My mother requests it everytime she comes over. Make sure that the sugar-butter mixture is not too warm before adding the soy sauce-lime mixture. It will scald. Also instead of the spinach, I throw asparagus with olive oil, salt and pepper in the preheated 400* oven 5 minutes before the salmon."
"I made this in the middle of the week-- it took almost no time to make & it was soooo delicious. My boyfriend said that this dish is definitely a "keeper". I halved the recipe because it was just 2 of us eating dinner. I ended up making a 2nd batch of the sauce to drizzle over the fish when we ate it for leftovers the next night. Loved this recipe--- so delicious! Grilled asparagus goes well w/ this as well (if you're not into spinach). Thanks for posting! :)"
"What a fantastic recipe. Easy to make, and very unique. Since my fiance and I really like spicy foods, I will add more red pepper next time--but it was still delicious without any extra."
"Absolutely fabulous! We like this hot one evening, and cold over salad the next."
