Reviews for Salmon with Chive Mayonnaise
"I use BOTH chicken broth AND the white wine rather than either-or. I also add in perhaps a wee bit more chicken broth for added flavor. All the rest is the same. The sophisticated chive-mayo mixture makes it taste like it could be presented in a restaurant! Never overcook salmon--you want it to remain moist!"
