    Our family really liked this recipe, though it is very different from any other salmon recipe we’ve tasted. The spices were a nice change and loved the yogurt sauce. Making it again tonight!

    I didn't really care for the yogurt sauce. I will try it again without the sauce

    I didn't particularly care for the taste of this. Easy to make, just not suited to my taste buds.~ Theresa
