  • Reviews

  • “I really liked the description and this had good reviews, but ….I made this recipe twice because I thought I really would like this, as the sauce had a nice flavor, but I really do not think it was made for salmon!Perhaps a good salad dressing or veggie sauce, I’m not sure, but if you like the taste of salmon and are used to it being savory, I definitely reccomend not using this recipe.Sorry to be so harsh, but I used $35.00 of fish on this…by the way, 4 stars is my lowest rating previous to this, so I really do try to be kind!”

  • “I like sweet marinades, mostly with chicken.Never would’ve thought a sweet marinade would taste great on salmon; I usually prefer dill, butter and lemon.My DH said “impressive”; and I was impressed as well!Thank you for picking this up at the grocery store and posting it! :)I marinated for the 10 minutes; I cooked 1 1/2 lbs salmon fillet cut in 3 in microwave:8 minutes high, covered with plastic wrap.Took out, basted and back in micro, with wrap, on high for 6 minutes.Unbelieveable taste and texture.DH reheated his at work in the micro, and still gave this rave reviews.”

  • “I was cooking for one and just made all the marinade but had only one bit of fish I marinated this for about one hour and then cooked it in the oven. It had a really nice flavour and I will make it again. Made for Honor thy Mother the diabetic forum M2011”

  • “Unfortunetly, these didn’t really stand out in my mind.I would definetly marinate for longer next time and there was very little glaze even for the two portions that I prepared.It wasn’t bad.”

  • “Absolutely delicious. Everyone loved this salmon. I served it with rice pilaf and green beans and of course some nice white wine as instructed and the dinner party was a huge success. The flavours in the marinade are a wonderful combination. I usually marinade my salmon in a bourbon and orange combination but this is definitely better. Thanks for posting Miller!”

  • “Superb in taste yet so light in calories, fit well for an elegant romantic dinner. I made only 2 servings without reducing the amount of glaze mixture and marinated for 4 hours. Completely surpassed my expectation. Served with my 1992 Oreghegy Ausbruch Hungarian white wine, it was a match made in heaven.”
