  1. Delicious! Made as posted, except in half! Easy and fast, loved it!
  2. I think I'll have to let the salmon marinate for a while next time around because the ingredients didn't quite flavour the salmon enough for me. Maybe my salmon was a bit thicker than others. The flavour it did have was really tasty though! I'll have to try it again asap and give a proper review :)
  3. I think it would have been better if it had marinated, but I didn't think the flavors really soaked into the fish in the short time called for by the recipe. It was okay, but nothing that special.
  4. It was easy to do. The glaze is great. I omitted the sesame seeds. Thanks karen :) Made for All you can cook buffet
  5. Really love the flavour of this salmon, delicious! I was out of the usual seseme seed so had to use black, hehe they look a little like ants. but the flavour was wonderful. I will make this again, thanks for posting.


Update Nov 2009 - I live in Northwestern Ontario with the cold and the bugs. A baby born in each of my decade 20's 30's 40's!!! plus 2 grandsons now. I love to cook and hardly ever repeat a recipe. I never really had a fav cookbook but I now have a favorite recipe site that I am totally addicted to-RECIPEZAAR!!! I still email recipes to my own kids. My pet peeve is those folks who turn their noses up at a dish even before they try it. My family have sat at the table with a pig tail or a chicken foot on their plate just becuz I found a recipe - HAHAHa - cooking should be fun and very once in a while the dogs get a treat! I also love watching decorating shows and my husband keeps promising to put wheels on the furniture to make room arrangments easier! We don't hobby farm anymore on our 8 acres and the large veg garden has been made over - half rock garden and other half with 12 new raised cedar beds because I am getting old and the knees don't work so well. It is fabulous and will post a new cover pic altho I love my Inukshuks!! I LOVE snowshoeing and am blessed to be able to walk out my back door and enjoy.
