Yummy is right! I'm not big on salmon but my hubby is. Out of curiosity I tried it, and it's good. It was easy to prepare also. Will make again, especially for company!

This is an excellent way to make salmon. Very flavorful and easy. My salmon took only 5 minutes to cook. I had some thinner wild fillets to use. Will make this again for sure. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
