Awesome! I couldn't quit eating the sauce. I used merlot instead of Pinot because that's what I had on hand otherwise followed the recipe. Super easy!
Advantages of this recipe is that it is good for a weeknight because it requires so few ingredients, is easy to prep, and comes together quickly. I used a nice Pinot Noir wine from Oregon. I guess we just did not care for the sauce, which may be personal taste, from reading other reviews. I served with a side of pole beans.
Always on the lookout for a new way to prepare salmon, considering how much of it we eat, & this recipe makes for a WONDERFULLY EASY way to prepare it, & the wine adds a very nice touch! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my teammates in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #18]
