I liked this recipe. Subtle flavors were interesting. However, I may poach the fish in a pan with the ingredients next time, rather than stea I think more of these unique flavors will be in each bite....-25 Apr 2003

My husband loved this recipe! He has never liked salmon until he tried this one. I did not steam the salmon, but baked it instead.-29 Apr 2003


This recipe works best if it's put into pan without holes and allowed to poach in the juices. The fish absorbs all of the wonderful flavors and you can ladle the sauce over white rice. YUMMY!-02 May 2008
