    I just tried this one today with a side of jasmine rice and quite liked it. The glaze could use a bit of playing around with as I found the salmon largely overpowered it.  -  27 Aug 2012


    simply great, and as always i change the recipe a little bit and turn out terrific, i used equal parts of orange juice and balsamic vinegar so it was 1/2 cup of orange juice and 1/2 of balsamic also 2 teaspoons of fresh ginger and 3 tbs of brown sugar put everything to boil for a while i use it for salmon chicken, meat everything always keep it in my fridge  -  20 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    i thought this was awesome. and so easy! i had to use red wine vinegar instead of balsamic (which i toned down w/ a touch of maple syrup) and grated dried ginger instead of fresh. i also added one small clove of minced garlic to (forgive me) kick it up a notch. i served it on a bed of cashew/ginger fried rice and drizzled the rest of the orange sauce on top with some toasted sesame seeds. fantabulous!  -  12 Jan 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
