Pretty darn good, but you need a taste for the "Wustershire" sauce to really enjoy the taste. Other reviews commented negatively about the lime--again, it's a matter of taste. Lime worked for my palette, although the second time around I used lemon and halved the Worcestershire and the fish came out just fine. The great thing about all the recipes you find on this site is that you try them and then make your own subtle changes to suit your tastes if needed. I believe the original is still worth trying.

Didn't like the recipe much, although it was very quick. I don't think lime juice should be anywhere near salmon, it was very overwhelming. I wouldn't make it again.

I've made this recipe twice with fresh salmon and it was delicious! Marinade it 45 mins to an hour and the flavor is wonderful. I baked the salmon but am anxious to try it on the grill.

This recipe was really easy, and it sounded good, but the Worchestershire was far too overwhelming for fish, plus it made the salmon dark so it was hard to see the cooking progress as well. I don't think I'll use this again.

Okay 1/4 of a cup of lime is a little much however the person who said lime shouldn't be near salom is a crazy. If you travel to costal regions and on many islands lime or lemons are used to clean and flavor fish of all sorts and it does leave a nice flavor. I took half a lime and squeezed it over the fillets then rubbed it over the salmon before placing it in the other ingredients to marinade therefore eliminating the need for the 1/4 cup lime juice.

This was a great marinade for salmon. I marinaded the salmon for 24 hours and, oh my gosh! It was the best grilled salmon I had ever made!

I really liked this recipe. It was easy and quick. I made it for tilapia, which was delicious too! I substituted most of the lime juice for lemon, and added a dash of the lime juice (Just out of preference). It all worked together perfectly on the grill! I will make this again and again, because my little picky eaters loved it too! Thanks for sharing!

I loved it! I was a little nervous putting the the sauce in the salmon since it would not blend well but it was excellent. I put lemon instead of lime and marinated for three hours in the fridge, then grilled and it was awesome!
