    An excellent receipe! I ended up marinating the salmon for 24 hours. I cooked the salmon on a George Foreman Grill. It was really delicious. While making the marinade I wanted to add ginger but didn't have any. Adding ginger would really compliment the flavours. Thanks for sharing your receipe!  -  21 Oct 2009

    Something else. I have one thing that I do every time I cook salmon. I always make a little foil parcel for each fillet and seal, leaving a little room for air to circulate inside. If you bake the foil parcels on a baking tray at 200 for about 15 minutes (slightly longer depending on number of fillets), the salmon cooks to perfection every time! This is a great recipe to use when preparing salmon in foil parcels... it poaches gently in its own juices and always comes out so tender and delicious!  -  21 Jul 2008
