I used a 1.5 pound filet of sockeye salmon. I followed the directions with the exception of topping the 4 filets with 1/2 of a large Vidalia onion, sliced, and one half of a green bell pepper, sliced. For the sauce, I used one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and one tablespoon lime juice, with about a half teaspoon of celery seed mixed in. My husband loved this dish and wants it again! ( Luckily, it made four generous servings!)
