"Salmon is marinated in soy, brown sugar, juice, spices, and fresh ginger; then broiled to perfection! My family and friends rave about this fish with every bite. Even my husband, who wouldn't eat salmon, now asks when we're having it again. Please try, for you and your family's health!" — onassis75

This is tasty recipe, but broiling this salmon doesn't do it any justice. The marinade is just too good. If you really want to get the most taste out of the salmon, try pan frying it after marinating with a little olive oil, searing both sides and locking in the juices, then save the left over marinade, add 1 tbsp corn starch, and heat until thick. It will make a great sauce that you can just lightly spread on top of the salmon. I tried this with my second attempt and my wife and I liked it much better.
This was ok. I would not be in a rush to make this again & I am always on the look out for good salmon recipes. I thought that it was good but not great. I perfer the Firecracker Salmon Recipe from this site which is similar to this but more flavorful.
This was GOOD!!! I changed a few things to suit our tastes - used 1/2 the amount of soy and brown sugar, used the juice of one lemon and ground black pepper instead of lemon pepper, and 3 cloves of crushed garlic instead of garlic powder. After marinating the salmon overnight in a baking dish, I put the whole dish with all the marinade in the oven and baked for 20 minutes. I took the skin off at the end. Delicious!
I made this salmon for a special New Year's Eve dinner. It was fabulous!! I agree with a previous poster, it is a $20 entree in a medium size city but I would add, a $30 entree in a big city. Since I have a 7 yr old and an 8 yr old and a 1 yr old eating this too, I was apprehensive about the amount of lemon pepper. I had doubled the recipe for the marinade because I was using 2 lbs of salmon, but I only used 2 tsp of lemon pepper instead of 4. It was not too peppery at all. Next, I must admit I was skeptical about thickening the marinade and cooking it and pouring it over the top like some reviewers recommended. I had always heard you should promptly discard your marinade. But I figured I was cooking the marinade so any bacteria would be killed so why not give it a try. Well, I am glad I did....it was awesome. So elegant, it would be such a waste to forgo a step that would only take 5 extra minutes.
Everyone loved it and couldn't stop saying thanks Mom, its great! My 8 yr old requested this every New Year's Eve...I think we will have it again way before that : )
This recipe was awesome! I would definitely suggest doubling the marinade though. I made just two servings with the enough marinade for four. I marinaded overnight and took earlier suggestions to make the remaining into a sauce for the fish. It was perfect. I added a little over a tablespoon of cornstarch and made sure to boil the mix for a few minutes (stirring constantly) just in case any bacteria still existed. This was my first time broiling and it couldn't have turned out better. The timing is incredibly accurate. I served it with Scoopnana's Sesame Noodles and Josie's Asian Avocado. The extra sauce was also good over the noodles. The meal was altogether fantastic.
Follow the recipe as is....just bake instead of boil - 350 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes depending on the thickness of the salmon. I have made this 3 times and my family loves it!!!
absolutely delicious! These were my modifications: no lemon pepper or garlic powder so used lemon zest and minced fresh garlic; only had regular soy sauce so reduced it to 1/4 cup and upped the OJ to almost 1/2 cup.
The fish turned out very well flavoured.
This recipe is definitely a keeper. I used the ingredients as stated, but only had time to marinate for 1 hour. I did baste with the sauce as i broiled the salmon, and the flavour was wonderful. I sprinkled some sesame seeds on before serving, to made it look more appealing.
There were no leftovers!!
