Reviews for Cilantro-Lime Salmon
"I liked it but husband did not, so probably won't make again. It is a fresher flavor combination than I typically use for salmon"
"SOOOOO easy, and really, really good! I'm not a huge sour cream fan in and of itself, but with the cilantro, garlic, and lime --- YUM!!!"
"This Puppy Hunts, BUT be very light on the spices as it will/can 'over whelm' the Salmon."
