I bought 1 1/2 lbs. of wild Alaskan salmon to make this recipe. I made the sauce and put it on the fish, and refrigerated it for 4 hrs. I used 3 T. of fresh ginger, chopped, and other than that made the recipe as directed. I did use fat free yogurt. I didn't care for the texture or taste of the mixture on top at all. The only flavor that came through was the whole peppercorns when I bit into one of them. The topping was curdled in texture, and just didn't do anything for me. I cooked it exactly 10 minutes at 500, and it was not done. I had to put it back in for about 3 more minutes. I hope someone else has better luck than I did. However, I will post a picture.

This recipe sounded so good, I refridgerated it for 4 hours before I cooked it, but I didnt taste any of the ingredients in the salmon. It tasted plain. Maybe I need to refridgerate it more?
