Oh, this was good. I do like salmon and this recipe brought wonderful flavor to the fish without overpowering it. I prepared it on my indoor stovetop grillpan and thought it did very well. I used herbs from my garden (first time I was able to do this) and felt just like Ina Garten. I will definitely be making this again!
