Its a favorite in my family. The different toppings are fantastic too. We especially love the dill caper butter.

I also have better recipes for salmon that I prefer. I did think that this was tasty, but not one of my favorites.

I have a number of savory recipes for salmon that I prefer over this one. I used the caper/shallot/dill topping and it was good but I'm not sure I will do this one again. The directions for baking were correct, however, and the salmon was cooked but still moist.

This was so good and had such a beautiful presentation. I made the gremolata topping - so delicious! My daughter says it's a keeper, and I agree!
