    I love salmon and I often use a marinade quite similar to yours! Of course my kids won't eat it, so I don't make it nearly as often as I'd like πŸ™

    This looks delicious…we eat salmon often so I'll have to keep this in mind.

    That's one sumptuous salmon and the ginger will remove it's fishy and stinky taste and smell. Best to dip in soy sauce with chili pepper and some lime.

    This salmon looks scrumptious! Any idea on what to make with it? Choosing side dishes for fish can be difficult. It's always good to pair it with something more than just rice!

    Do we keep the skin on the salmon when we cook it?

      If your salmon fillets have skin on, cook the skin side down first. Gently flip the fillet to cook the other side and you'll notice the skin will come right off. Cooking with the skin on can help keep the salmon moist!

    We might have to try this, it sounds pretty good! I mostly despise all fish, but my mom makes salmon on the grill using a cedar slab and plenty of real maple syrup. Unbelievably yummy…and this coming from a fish hater.

    This looks amazing – how can I cook this if I have a simple pan (no grill)? Can it be done in the oven (maybe on broil?)

      Rebecca – You could definitely bake, broil, or saute the fish!

    if I wanted to use ground ginger instead of a fresh ginger root, how much do you think I would need?

      1/4 teaspoon – though ground ginger won't have the same flavor.

    Love this! This is so similar to how my Chinese mom taught me how to panfry fish — soy sauce, ginger, scallions, garlic, rice wine, and brown sugar. I like the idea of an extra kick from the lemon and orange juice! It sounds delicious.
