    2. Place salmon steaks in a baking dish and season with salt and pepper. Pour marinade over salmon, cover and refrigerate 10 minutes.
    3. Preheat barbecue for medium high heat.
    4. Lightly oil the grill hotplate. Shake excess marinade from salmon steaks, place on grill and cook for 5 to 8 minutes on each side, or until fish is easily flaked with a fork.

    Something else. Delicious recipe, made it a few times now and always been a hit. I found the marinade burns on the bbq, and instead bake the fish for about 20 mins at 160-180 degrees celsius (fan forced). This cooks the fish beautifully, and leaves the marinade only slightly caramelized around the edges.  -  01 Jul 2010


    Altered ingredient amounts. this was delicious! I used a little sugar instead of honey and added olive oil and puried it in the blender. I marinated the salmon and scored the skin. I grilled it in the oven, skin side up, after putting more sauce in the scores. It was sweet AND DELICIOUS.  -  29 Sep 2008


    My all-time favourite salmon recipe! You will be amazed at how well this pulls together. This is the recipe that gets your kids to like fish. My flatmate, who hates fish, tried it and loved it. The honey carmelises on the salmon, making a satiny glaze. The coriander in this pairs very well with the lime and surprisingly well with the honey, which offers a very nice sweetness. This recipe is very fast, it takes about 10 minutes to put together, and is ready in another 10. Restaurant quality. We grilled ours for about 6 minutes per side which is what gave it the wonderful glaze.  -  29 Sep 2008
