Great salmon recipe! The only change I made was to use a cherry balsamic vinegar becasue I didn't have raspberry. The method for cooking the salmon is absolutely perfect. I didn't have to adjust the time at all. The sauce is a nice counterbalance to the Dijon mustard. I had almost exactly 2 T. left in my jar of lingonberry jam. It was meant to be! Made for Family Picks during ZWT9 for the Soup-A-Stars. Thank you!

This is a lovely dish, I loved the lingonberry with the shallot, I cut the recipe in half for one serving and wished I had made all of the sauce. I pan roasted my salmon - I used a skin on Coho fillet and cooked it skin side down in a partially covered pan until mostly cooked through then flipped it over briefly.

This was spectacular! I tasted the sauce beforehand and found it a bit tart. But in combination with the salmon, it was just right.
