    I had a lottt of cilantro to use up so I pretty much just used all the ingredients listed and used my own measurements. Ended up using a lot more soy sauce and didn't have any sugar so I used about a tablespoon and a half of honey. Also spooned the mixture over the salmon about halfway through cooking. Turned out delicious!

    Great recipe, added a couple pinches of dried red pepper flakes to the sauce and it was perfect!

    This is going to go down as one of my 'Go To' recipes. It's quick and easy, healthy and versatile. You can pan fry or bake the fish instead of broiling it. I ran out of lime once and used balsamic vinegar instead and that worked out wonderfully as well.

    Very easy and delicious! I made this for my husband and I, and another couple. Instead of asparagus I made a simple greens salad. Salmon was fresh from Wegmans.....everyone raved!
