Reviews for Salmon with Lemon-Mushroom Sauce
"I cooked mushrooms in microwave but baked salmon in oven after pouring on the mushroom sauce. I also added raw shrimp before baking. Husband loved it!"
"Great recipe I also added onions and cayenne pepper an wow amazing I did it on top of the stove"
"microwave dried it out a little but it was fast to make"
"However, I like to use capers instead of the mushrooms........love it like that!"
"This is a very good recipe. However, I cooked the mushrooms on top of the stove and baked the salmon in the oven because microwaving takes the nutrition out of the food."
