I often make this very moist and flavorful salmon for company because I can have it ready in less than half an hour. I like to serve it with rice, or a green vegetable and a tossed salad." —Emily Chaney, Penobscot, Maine

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 14, 2016

"I agree with some of the reviewers below--as written, the dish was a tad bland. To make it more to our liking, I added BOTH the chicken broth and white wine so the sauce would cover the fish as it cooks in order to add more flavor. I used 1/2 cup of each the wine and broth. I always season fish with lemon pepper before it gets another layer of seasoning, crumbs, etc. I have served it with Taste of Home "Lemon LInguine" and it made a nice pairing."

"This was very bland. If I ever make it again, I'd have to add a lot more seasoning. I used chicken broth & olive oil instead of butter."
