Asian Baked Salmon - Ina Garten

It is Friday and that means, lots of cooking for the Sabbath.  I usually make salmon  on Fridays and each week, I look for new ways to make the salmon.  Since, I am cooking for  these two weeks with Ina Garten, I decided to use one of her recipes.  This particular one sounded good.   I think anything that has soy sauce will be a success. 

I am a big fan of salmon in almost any form.  I like salmon patties with canned salmon and of course fresh salmon is delicious.  I buy most of my salmon from Costco and while the price used to be spectacular, it is now going up, in cost.

Each Friday, the question for me, is ,"What kind of salmon should I select for tonight?"  Not  a major question but it is a fun one. Liking salmon, I love to experiment with these recipes.  Tonight's recipe was originally a grilled salmon with the same recipe except I subbed onion for the garlic, which makes hubby gets sick from.  (the garlic makes him ill.)  I also baked it, rather than grill it.
