- Place salmon fillets in a medium, nonporous glass dish.

Great, easy recipe. My outdoor grill is closed up for the season, and I didn't want to get my stove top all greasy using the grill pan. So after marinating the fish for 4 hours, I put the fish in a glass dish, poured the marinade over and put it in a 400 degree convection oven for 20 minutes, GREAT. Putting it in the oven with the marinade gives the fish a glaze. Delicious!! Thanks-06 Nov 2002
Don't throw the marinade out!!! Put the marinade in a saucepan with a couple of tablespoons of dry white wine and simmer for about 5 minutes. Drizzle on the salmon - just makes it even better.-22 Sep 2007
We use this recipe ALL THE TIME! The marinade is fine for a few hours, but the flavor is best when you marinade overnight. I let it soak in a plastic zip bag rather than a covered dish. So easy! If you're missing one or two ingredients, it's usually still very good. I often make it with canola oil rather than peanut oil, and it's just as good IMO. I make this for others and share the recipe often.Probably my favorite recipe from this site....seriously.-13 Apr 2007
