Reviews for Creamy Herb Grilled Salmon
"I broiled this, ended up burning it and it was still amazing."
"This recipe is outstanding. I have made it several times now using my own fresh herbs. I love it so much that I have started additional pots of herbs and plan to freeze them so I can have this awesome salmon recipe all winter long."
"I have been looking for a salmon recipe for the grill. This one is perfect! I did put the salmon in tinfoil, covered with the sauce, and also topped it with thinly sliced onions. Outstanding!"
"Loved the herbed sauce! We cooked the salmon on a cedar plank with the sauce on top. Want to try the sauce with other types of fish! I will make this again..and again!"
"Excellent sauce. While I'm not a huge fan of Salmon, this sauce was a great accent that made me a fan of this type of fish."
"Outstanding flavor. I didn't have the fresh versions of chives, dill or parsley so I used the dried, letting them soften for a while in the sour cream. And, not having a grill, I did them under the broiler in my oven, and the fish was wonderful. I usually make my own tartar sauce, so this was a nice alternative, and one that I will use again."
"This was really good and easy. Since I have to keep the sodium down, I used a little less Ranch dressing and a little more sour cream (just used a 3/4 cup measuring cup and put sour cream in first and finished off with the Ranch). I did not add salt but I did use more dill and chives. Really liked this because there is NO low sodium tartar except what I make myself and this made up for that."
"I will make this my new "regular"!! The sauce is like built-in tartar sauce. I use dried herbs, and let them marinate in the dressing at least 30 minutes. I also like to do the foil packet method of grilling (or baking). The salmon steams in its own juices, and is creamy/delicious!! Try it!!"
