A Family favorite. Didn't really like the cucumber sauce
This has become a go-to salmon recipe for me--easy and delicious. I always use skinless salmon; also I often omit the pecans in the topping, and add dill, Old Bay, lemon pepper, or whatever else is at hand to spice it up. Very versatile, and great flavor.
This was very good. I made it for two.
Taste was very good although fish was a little bit dry for my taste. I'll probably make more sauce to go with it next time.
This is one of our favorite meals and it is SO easy! I make it often and even my two young children love it.
