What a wonderful salmon recipe! I cut the recipe in half and used garlic salt and lemon pepper instead of the S&P called for in the recipe. It was easy to make and the sauce really made it special. It's definitely going into my "Keeper" file. I never would have thought of putting the sauce ingredients together on my own. Thanks so much for posting!

I loved this salmon! I didn't have fresh dill so I had to use dried. I can't believe this is good for me too. I'll be making this one again! Made for ZWT 4 by a jefe de la cocina.
