“Brown sugar and sesame oil lend superb flavor to this entree which is served on a bed of spinach. Serve with hot white rice. From a May 1986 issue of Bon Appetit in a section that featured "Chinese Seafood Entrees".Marinate time is not included in prep time. You may prefer to wilt the spinach slightly before adding the salmon.”
