"I didn't think I liked salmon until I tried this recipe. I can't say enough positive things about it. It was very moist and flavorful. My husband also loved it. I look forward to making this many times in the future. I've already passed the recipe around at work so everyone else can have the wonderful meal we enjoyed. I served it with baked potatoes and steamed carrots."
