i loved this recipe . It was exactly what I was craving.
The salmon part of this recipe was good, however, the dill sauce was nothing spectacular. I have a better ToH recipe I'll use next time.
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!
