This is an excellent recipe. Moist inside, crunchy outside. I don't think you need the Yougert sauce.

I rarely make a recipe twice for special occasions, but this on is always sick a hot I keep making it! I never bother with the cucumber sauce.The mayonnaise makes the first so moist! I even freeze the extra topping and reuse.

My husband loves this recipe and recently requested it again. Absolutely fabulous! Quick to make and impressive enough to serve guests. This salmon is now part of his birthday meal-from now on!

Taste was very good although fish was a little bit dry for my taste. I'll probably make more sauce to go with it next time.

This is one of our favorite meals and it is SO easy! I make it often and even my two young children love it.

I'm on a diet, so I substituted extra virgin olive oil for butter. It was delicious.
