Very nice! After reading other reviews, I didn't bother with the peanut oil, but did use the sesame oil for the flavor. As always, I used low sodium tamari soy sauce. Marinated only two hours...

OMG! this is soooooo good!!! I could literally drink the marinade, it's that good. :) Since I was only serving my hubs and myself, I purchased two salmon filets. My butcher gave me 8 oz. filets ...

I love salmon, but I was expecting a lot more flavor in the marinade...especially from the ginger and balsamic...I couldn't really taste them in the final product. Still, it was good and I think...
