So refreshing and super easy! I threw it together for the first time and my tastebuds were tingling from its blast of fruity citrus! The best salmon I've ever tasted!! great summer dish for grilling too! - Usually served with steamed or stir fried, veggies and a little brown rice!

The citrus notes do carry through in the recipe. I used cooking spray instead of the spreadable butter & was more liberal with the cayenne and was happy with the result. The zests & chives on top added color too. Served with Asparagus in Paradise. Made for Spring 2010 Pick A Chef.

Really good, and a great way to get rid of too many lemons. I'm allergic to salmon, so I used tilapia and it was still quite tasty.
