reduced-sodium soy sauce
grated fresh ginger root
garlic clove, crushed
white rice vinegar (or other white vinegar)
boneless, skinless salmon fillet, cut in four pieces
scallions, thinly sliced with green
toasted sesame seeds
The sauce in the recipe, when reduced down and thickened is a wonderful accompaniment to the salmon. I've made this twice, the first time I had no orange marmalade, but did have apricot preserves. Both worked out excellently.
My hubby prefers the apricot flavor over the orange. It seems to detract from the salmon flavor alot less than the orange.
I thought this was too orangy. There wasn't a balance of flavors like in the Grilled Salmon with Ginger-Orange Glaze from this site. Also, I didn't think the flavors complimented the fish very well. Thanks anyway.
Perfect! The only change I made was that I used a 2.5 pound peice of salmon on the grill instead of smaller fillets. I put the salmon on the bed of rice and drizzled a little leftover glaze on it. This made a beautiful, tasty and healthfull lunch. I will definately make this again!
Delicious! I confess that I made a lot of changes, just based on what I had on hand and my husband's preferences. I had no sesame anything, so just used grapeseed oil. I had no scallions, so did no after-cooking topping. Because of my husband's preferences, I omitted the ginger and garlic (which I thought might be a bit strong for salmon anyway). Also, I baked instead of grilled, for simplicity's sake. But all that said, I think the heart of the recipe is the marmalade-soy sauce-oil-vinegar glaze, which is delicous and keeps the salmon moist. A keeper recipe, good for 2 or company.
Fantastic recipe! I have only recently decided to change my eating habits and adding salmon to my diet was one of the things I decided to do - even though I don't really like it! This has sold me on salmon though, i never realised it could taste so great! Can't wait to have this again!
My husband and I love this recipe. It is prepared in no time and tastes just delicious. I have been making this dish at least once a month for the last 1.5 years and we never get tired of it. Thanks for a great recipe.
I've made this recipe a few times and always get rave reviews from my dinner guests. It is one of my favorite salmon recipes. Very good!
excellent, it's like an orange-teriyaki sauce. I had this on tuna steaks and it was wonderful.
