    I personally love fresh mint, and was excited when I was recommended this recipe on the "Recipe Buzz". I followed the recipe exactly, however I wasn't very impressed. None of the mint flavor shone through, but maybe I'm not used to the flavor of cooked mint. I usually use it fresh. I found it too salty as well. It was OK but I will try something else next time.  -  07 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I really enjoyed the mint flavor that came through here. I used a combination of pineapple mint and spearmint that I had growing in the garden.  -  27 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I am giving this fish a 4 on account of the family really did not care for it but I did.The mint was not very prominent, I added 2 bunches of fresh mint for 2 1/2 lbs of fish. I used cilantro instead of the parsley. It was easy and quick. I tought it tasted really good! Thanks for an interesting take on salmon!  -  11 Nov 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
