I'm knocking off one star because I don't think the sauce needed as much (or any) olive oil as the recipe called for, as salmon is already naturally rich in oils. Maybe a tsp of olive oil would've been enough if you want the aroma/flavor of olive oil in your sauce. Having said that, both the bf and I thought this was a good dish - very rich flavor with just enough hints of lemon. The sauce is excellent over rice. (I took the advice of some previous reviwers and boiled/thickened the leftover marinade with some corn starch). I did double the amount of sauce as I am a huge sauce person, and I also increased the amount of brown sugar to make it a little sweeter - that's the nice thing about the sauce - you can tinker with it while mixing until it is exactly to your liking - plus I added a few shakes of red pepper flakes, just for kicks. I only had enough time to marinade the fish for a little over an hour, but I think it was enough, as fish already contains some natural salt, and rubbing the meat with brown sugar/garlic powder/lemon pepper prior to marinading really helps seal in those flavors. Thanks for a great recipe! Will definitely make again.
