This is an awesome recipe and I have tried it several times. After you put the ingredients together and smell it, you just know that it will be fantastic. I had similiar problems with getting the Salmon to keep the flavor and have found that if you wrap it in Aluminum with some of the marinade and cook it you retain much more of that flavor, but you lose some grilled flavor. If you cook it almost to done and then remove and place on the grill by itself it gets a good mix of both the grilled flavor and the marinade.

Marinade didn't kick in. Maybe try marinating for longer next time...

Great marinade! I used olive oil instead of peanut and omitted the onions with good results. Great smell and taste.

I have been using this recipe for about 2 years. It is my favorite salmon recipe and always turns out delicious. I have substituted onion powder and garlic powder for the fresh ingredients and it has turned out very good. I think the taste of fresh ginger is the standout though. Thanks for a great recipe that impresses everyone I've tried it on.

This was delicious! I bought the huge salmon you can get at Costco and marinaded it over night. I wrapped it in foil and threw it on the grill! I hate fish and usually don't eat it but this was amazing! I would highly recommend it for fish lovers and haters alike!

This recipe was fabulous. I have used the marinade on tenderloin, chicken and pork. I also used it as a salad dressing. I received rave revies from my roomate. I also emailed it to friends and family.

After a year of making this recipe I made it again last night and it was fantastic. I added more garlic and reduced the sauce, but this is the best salmon recipe ever. I used go to a restaurant in North Atlanta and pay about $30 for this dish; now I think this recipe is much better. My sons also love it, and they're "picky eaters."
