I followed the recipe as written. My husband doesn't care for sauces but I was surprised when he said it was a keeper. This was a pleasant change from plain old lemon butter, which is the only way he likes it. Makes dinner a bit more exciting for me!

We absolutely loved this salmon dish. The only change I made was to use some fresh tarragon -- it really adds a wonderful taste to the dish. Simple ingredients with great flavor. Made for the FYC tag game.

Yum! So good and easy!! I used fresh tarragon (doubled the amount of the dried). Will make this again. Thanks for posting. Made for Culinary Quest FP 2014.
