Tasty, no one ingredient stood out, excellent on poached cod. We made extra to pour over pasta shells. Easy to make and will be made again.

I think this was pretty good. Creamy, a lot of dill flavor. I think it is missing something though. Maybe a little white wine? I'll probably try it again and play with the recipe some.

This one was delish. I put in closer to a tablespoon of dill, just because it was the first of the season and I was hungry for it. It was easy and went really great with our fish.
