    Kimke's Note:

    I don't remember where I got this recipe but it is totally sinful! We eat ALOT of salmon and I am always looking for new ways to prepare it. This is really different and has a very rich taste. It would be an appropriate dish for a special night or dinner party but is easy enough for a work night.

      I doubled the pistachios, lime juice and garlic, used 15 basil leaves and it was great. I marinated the salmon with a little white wine, 3 cloves of garlic, garlic powder, salt and pepper to add some flavor. Used this sauce to serve over Angel Hair but I would definitely try rice instead next time.

      Great! I halved the butter amount as some other reviewers have, as well.

      Made with chicken and put the extra over cauliflower "rice" and it was delicious. Even forgot the lime juice, oops.
