I really enjoyed this meal. I would have preferred more sauce on the salmon but I would recommend this recipe to any Salmon lover.

This was a tasty, easy recipe!! I am usually nervous of cooking salmon because it was never something that my family ate when I grew up... but this recipe was easy enough to take my fears away! I liked the cream sauce so much that I went back and made more... plus I was compelled to add extra dill!! I used "It's a Dilly" seasoning by McCormick, which is not pure dill, which might explain why I needed more. When scaled down to a single serving, this recipe was quick enough to prepare for a small meal for myself, which is something I have been looking for. I had this for lunch and am going to make more tonight to test it on my husband, who doesn't usually care for salmon. As others have suggested, I will try the Lemon Roast Potatoes as well, along with a few fried shrimp just in case my husband doesn't care for the salmon!! But I think he will... it had a great flavor. Even if he doesn't, it will go on my easy lunch recipe list! Thanks!

I've made this a few times now exactly as written and everyone loves it. Today I mistakenly shook some of emeril's original and it made the sauce outstanding! Great recipe!

I've been on the hunt for a salmon recipe that wasn't flavorful on the outside and dull on the inside and I think I've found it! Very easy recipe. Next time I'll use thinner pieces of salmon so that I can cook it better.

Excellent! This was my first time making salmon, and I was more than a little bit wary, as my mother has never had salmon that she liked before and I was making dinner for the two of us.
I used wild caught fillets and cooked them for about 6-8 minutes, as I am usually fond of fish on the undercooked side. I added a little lemon and salt to the cream sauce for flavor, and corn starch to thicken it a bit more. I served it over fried rice and it was excellent!!
The whole thing was much easier than I'd expected and took very little time.
And the best part--my mother loved it! The woman who'd never found salmon to be digestible before was absolutely raving about how good it was.
Thank you for posting!!!!

This was OK. I thought it was a little bland. I might try adding some more lemon juice with the cream and capers with a little bit of white wine.

This was pretty good. I had defrosted salmon fillets and forgot I couldn't use the oven and it was raining - so the grill was out too. I didn't have lemon juice so I substituted lemon pepper and some garlic. I also cut back on the butter. Not bad at all, and very quick. We served it with brown rice and green beans.

Hubby was staring and I had already thaws out salmon so I tried this quick and easy recipe that turned out so delicious. I used about 2T less butter and it still came out wonderful. Thanks very much!
