What a great recipe! Easy, fast, and most importantly, delicious. The only change I made was to use dried basil and parsley as I didn't have fresh.
This is indeed "Awesome"! This is a dish elegant enough for company and simple enough to serve to your family. I made exactly as Marie directed for the perfect salmon. This sauce is incredible and the perfect sauce for salmon! I also served slices of lemon for those desirous of a more lemony flavor. Thanks so much, Marie!
This was on Point....all I did different was add a extra teaspoon of lemon topping...we Loved it
