I tried this recipe and it was so good I made it again during the week. The dill sauce is perfection and the salmon was just so yummy. My new go-to recipe for salmon.
I love this dill sauce! I leave out the horseradish (Hubby isn't so fond) and add about a tablespoon of pickle juice. For the salmon, I cut it in to smaller pieces, and make individual foil packets. I lay the fillets on a bed of fresh rosemary in the foil packet. I also substitute olive oil for the butter. The cook temp and time is exactly the same. It always comes out perfect and Hubby loves it.
I'd rate this a 10 if I could. It's a wonderful meal!
I made this and it was great. My cooking skills are limited as I have waited so long to actually start cooking, but this was simple and easy and turned out very well.
On my favorite recipe list. Easy to prepare and so delicious to eat. If your not a fan of cream sauces the fish is good on its own as well.
