Great recipe Terese. We loved the fresh, lemony taste and the fact that it was as quick to make as you promised, I had a bit of dill going to waste, so put some of that in too, as I think it goes well with lemon and salmon..

This was great. I added some sauteed baby portabellas and capers, and waited to mix in the salmon until immediately before serving.

This was nice, however I was a little disappointed that the salmon was "cooked" by the time we ate it. I think next time I would stir the salmon through when the chopped parsley is added. Thanks!
