    I added 3/4 tsp cumin and 1 TBSP chili powder to give this an extra kick - really great with a hint of the citrus coming through.
    Also broiled in the oven until done.
    Will make this again maybe next time cook it on the grill.

    Instead of using the microwave, I baked this in a regular oven at 450F for about 25 minutes. I turned out very nicely - 4/24/07

    I always microwave my salmon (4 oz. frozen) since I live alone. It only takes 4 minutes. I can't imagine what would be left of the fish after 15 minutes in the microwave! - 2/27/11

    I broil my salmon as it is faster, but the glaze is good. I've used lemon juice and dijon but never orange juice before. - 2/27/11
