Reviews for Salmon with Creamy Dill Sauce
"This was great! No changes needed. Will make this again."
"Loved this mild sauce... Very good"
"This was the best ever salmon recipe I think I have made. The dill sauce was mouthwatering!!! Loved it."
"This was so good! To lighten it up I only used a very small amount of butter and substituted fat free Greek yogurt for both the sour cream and mayo in the sauce. It was wonderful- will definitely be making again."
"This dill sauce is so delicious, I could sit and eat it with a spoon. Just love it!"
