Baked Salmon (with Lime, Jalapeno Chive and Sour Cream Sauce)

Top Review by hairmuch

This was great! I used Tilapia and I did not have chives so I used Cilantro!! Also I flavored the fish with garlic powder and Cumin. I put the x-tra sauce on our mex.flavored vegies. This is a keeper. The sauce coulp be used on many foods. Thanks for the Recipie********
