    CandyTX's Note:

    This is one of Tom's special meals that he makes when we are having company (or when I bug him enough, I LOVE salmon)... it makes a beautiful dish and it absolutely wonderful! This is from another recipe and he's adjusted the ingredients a bit to our tastes, it's easy to play around with, so feel free!

      This was delicious! Even my husband, who is not a salmon lover, complimented me AND ate it all! I made it according to the directions except I added the juice of 1 lemon (not sure how many TB this is, but it was just right) and an extra TB of butter. So yummy! This meal will be added to my regular rotation!

      I'm really sorry to have to rate this so low - I had such high hopes for this recipe. The salmon cooked beautifully but the sauce was so lemony, it made me pucker. The capers added to the bitterness of the sauce.

      I'm happy to be the first to review this was wonderful! I cut the salmon down (for 2 of us....not sure of exzct weight) but otherwise prepared it as called for. The sauce is delectable and went so well with the orzo and small green peas and onions that went with the dinner. Thanks for posting a keeper Tom&Candy!
