The salmon was moist and delicious -Instead of pouring the sauce over the baked salmon I mixed the sauce, cut back on the wine and poured it over the salmon before baking it. The flvour was perfect. It was so easy to prepare and very tasty

Made last night, I also just poured the sauce over and baked off in my vintage Cornflower dutch oven. While the sauce 'broke' a bit, it was still good. Used sour cream since we had no plain yogurt, dried dill, not having fresh around, added fresh parsley, and sprinkled capers over when serving. As long as you don't overcook, a great dish. Will try "per the recipe" next time tho, as I wasn't thrilled with the appearance of the broken sauce, but liked the flavor.

Found this recipe to use with some great salmon filets this week, and it didn't disappoint! Didn't have any wine, so substituted 1/2 water and 1/2 grape juice instead. The sauce was great, though a little runny - likely my fault as I eyeballed everything. Will definitely make again!
