      Wonderful dish for salmon! I sauteed the salmon in a bit of olive oil with a dash of lemon juice and a sprinkle of dill and pepper while preparing the rest of the dish as directed. It was really good, with a lovely presentation! Thanks for sharing! ZWT6

      The sauce was more of a broth for us, was ok. Just wasn't something that I loved. Thank you for posting. Made for ZWT 6.

      This sauce was much lighter than ordinary cream-based sauces, and I liked the fact that it was thinner as I found it coated the capellini well, but left it 'wet' enough for easy eating and slurping. I had made extra salmon yesterday just to try this recipe and it's a winner! Everything worked so well together flavour-wise and the whole family enjoyed it. Thanks.
