"This recipe is definitely very rich and delicious. Whenever I make this, I'm always so proud of myself for making something so "gourmet" haha. Note: do NOT try to beat the egg whites by hand, use a mixer. I stood there for a good 5 minutes with my arm and wrist cramping up, trying to do it by hand."

"Simple and delicious! I was halfway thru the recipe before I discovered I was out of Parmesan, so I substituted a light sprinkling of shredded Jack cheese, and it was a hit! The topping adds just the right amount of flavor without overwhelming the salmon. I will definitely be doing this again with Parmesan!"

"Excellent, but next time I'll make half the topping. Far too much for the amount of fish."

"Great recipe. The fish was very moist. I would use a larger pan so the topping does not flow over the entire group pf fillets."
