The recipe was a good one - I used Wild Alaskan Salmon in order to have a supreme flaky texture! However, one may want to use about 1-2 teaspoons less of chili powder, a touch more honey, lemon juice and orange juice concentrate to give it a more citrus flavor (the chili powder was slightly overpowering in taste and smell/aroma). Thanks for sharing PF&R!
