This tasted wonderful but I think the cooking time should be increased a bit if you like your Salmon cooked through. A fruity Chardonnay went well with this dish. It will appear on my table again. - 08 Oct 2008

This recipe was just what I needed for a busy day with houseguests. I served rice as a side dish and after the salmon was finished cooking, I poured the juices in the pan over the rice. It was fabulous! - 08 Oct 2008
