    This was really good, and it deserves 5 stars for taste. But I gave it 4 stars because I had a problem with the unclear directions. Step #4 states to "pour the remaining marinade" (into saucepan, to boil and reduce). However, Step #2 states to mix the glaze ingredients and put salmon in it to marinate for 1 hour. There is no step to portion out the marinade and use only some (half ?) for the marinade and save the other portion (half ?) to use later. So I used all of the glaze to marinate the salmon, and I ended of having to mix up a bit more marinade to heat and reduce into a glaze while the salmon baked in the oven. Maybe it's clear to others, but that was confusing for me. Made for Football Pool Week 4.

    Made for the FF&F "Think Pink" event - We eat a lot of salmon here in Iceland, prefer it oven-baked & well-flavored & have 2 marinades we use regularly for it. 1 is mango-based & the other is cognac-based. This is another that we esp enjoyed. I made the recipe as written except that I did not fully reduce the sauce as I did not want it to become so strong that it masked the lovely salmon flavor. It was served w/rice as another reviewer suggested. This was a big success w/us, Lori. Thx for sharing the recipe w/us. :-)

    I would have liked a bit more Amaretto flavor, too, so I would cut the soy sauce amount and up the Amaretto amount next time. Still, this was very tasty and cooking time was right on. The marinade boiled down to a nice, thick sauce. Made for tag game at kittencalskitchen.com

    This is tasty but I'm disappointed cause I couldn't taste the amaretto. Next time, I would cook the salmon with the marinade. Thanks Lauralie :) Made for the Zwizzle Chicks of ZWT
