Reviews for Moist Salmon with Dill Sauce
"Easy and good."
"I baked my foil packets in a 450 degree oven for 12 minutes. Very moist. The fresh dill sauce is really good."
"awesome, easy sauce. Definitely a keeper!"
"I love both salmon and dill so it should be good. "
"YUM. Made the sauce with Tilapia, worked very well there too."
"This was absolutely delicious. The only problem I had was that I didn't use reduced sodium broth and the sauce turned out a little salty for my taste. I recommend that you definitely use the reduced-sodium broth when you're making the sauce for this dish. Other than that its fabulous"
