    Delicious. A little too spicy for my liking, but that’s an easy fix. Highly recommend!

    Turned out very tasty! I added some green onions to the marinade as well and cooked in foil versus a casserole dish. Yum!

    My favorite thing about this recipe is that the salmon can marinate for 24 hours, which means it can be prepared the day before. This is because the marinade doesn't call for any acidic ingredient. I've done this recipe three times so far, I replace the siracha with red papers paste as that's what I always keep in my fridge. Comes out perfect 👌. Thanks for sharing this!

    So good! My husband thought it was the best salmon he ever had. I am pretty sure it was the perfect amount of spice.

    So good. I did marinate it for 8 hours and it turned out so good and was easy to prepare. Now on my go-to salmon cook list...

    Very quick and easy. I like it spicy, so next time I will probably increase hot sauce and decrease brown sugar.

    It was delicious! Would definitely make it again. Flavor was on point and salmon stayed juicy.

    Excellent recipe. Marinated it for around 4 hours and cooked right around 20 minutes.

    Turned out great. May recommend marinating in Tupperware or container that will keep the marinade over more of the surface area. Used an thermometer to cook it to 130 and it was perfect after a few minute rest.

    Best salmon recipe I’ve ever tried!!! The flavor was full-spicy, but not overly spicy. I took the reviewers advice and marinated 24 hours. I made a larger filet and baked at 375 with the skin on. It took an extra 8 min but it was a large piece. I didn’t have fresh ginger on hand so I used ground ginger and it was amazing. Even my kids inhaled it. Will be making again soon!

    Really very good. Spicy and flavorful. I halved the brown sugar and it was just right. Also broiled instead of baked.

    My kids loved it. The only change I made was cooking the salmon in the instant pot.

    Seriously the best salmon ever to enter my mouth!

    Delicious. I think that next time i will use a little less brown sugar and a little more sriracha.
