I changed the proportions of this recipe, and had to cook it for half an hour, but it was amazing, especially for such a simple recipe. Very moist, with a subtle flavor.

I found this to be alright... average. It was easy, but didn't have a lot of flavor. I enjoyed the ginger, but the sesame and rice vinegar didn't add much. I didn't like cooking the salmon on top of the carrots because the carrot got the salmon goo on them. I love salmon and have tried a lot of recipes. This one was just okay for me.

This is an excellent recipe -- quick, easy, yet worthy of company. I didn't have salmon so I substituted large white fish (swai) fillets. As a result, I did have to increase the cooking time. Despite that, the fillets came out very moist and were very flavorful. I also didn't make individual packets, but wrapped and sealed all of the carrots and fish I was preparing in one foil-lined pan. The meal is colorful and healthy. It is a very versatile and "forgiving" recipe that I will definitely make again. Thank you for sharing.

Excellent. Added some red pepper flakes before baking. Very moist and flavorful.

I didn't have rice vinegar so used lemon juice in it's place. It didn't have a wonderful flavor - just the same old salmon and lemon with a bit of garlic on a bed of carrots and spinach. So, next time I'll go buy rice vinegar to see if that makes the dish. Otherwise, I love cooking in foil - easy cleanup!!

Loved it! I'm not a huge salmon fan but ths tasted great! Added a few chili flakes for some heat but that was the only adjustment I made. It was wonderful!
