      I did make some additions: I put lemon juice in step 5 rather than water, it wasn't necessary, between the vinegar (I used white balsamic) and zest it was tart enough, although the sub didn't make it too tart or lemony. I did put 1 T refrigerated minced garlic with the green onion I used insead of shallot. I dusted the salmon with granulated garlic and powdered rosemary and basil and sprinkled with smoked kosher salt instead of table salt, I forgot the pepper, didn't miss it. I think the butter (I used no-salt butter) could be reduced by nearly half, there was a lot left in the bottom of the dish. Serving size was generous, we only ate half, but I served a hearty pasta side dish, asparagus and a spinach fruit salad with it. 20 minutes in my convection oven at 400 degrees was perfect, it was flaky and moist. Delicious! A definate do-again!

      Delicious! Great over boiled potatoes and asparagus on the side. I think the sauce would be good over just about everything.

      This truly is a delicious recipe. We added two tablespoons of lemon juice and two cloves of garlic (we are huge garlic fans), and use green onions instead of shallots. We also broil the salmon instead of bake it (saves 15-20 minutes if you are in a hurry). Thanks for the excellent recipe!
