Reviews forSalmon with Creamy Dill Sauce
"Salmon was good. Really did not need to broil as the salmon was done in the 20 minutes of initial baking. We enjoyed the sauce but even 1/2 the recipe was too much. Next time I would cut to 1/4."
"Great recipe! My husband and I made this for valentines day dinner, it went absolutely beautifully. We added the dill sauce prior to broil... it really added a wonderful touch"
"Loved this dill sauce!!! Very easy too!!!"
"This was great! I didn’t have horseradish so I substituted fresh grated ginger. Next time I’ll remive the onion and lemon slices before broiling. They got charred, but the lemon protected the salmon from drying out after 10 minutes cooking time."
"YUM!!! I cut the toppings for the salmon into 1/4 since we were only doing 1 small piece of salmon - worked out perfectly. Only need 1 lemon - half for the slices on top, the other half I juiced for the lemon juice in the sauce. I only cut the sauce in half because I wanted to make sure we got enough. I probably would have been fine cutting it in 1/4, but I don't mind the leftover! We both completely devoured this. The salmon was good on its own but the sauce made it DELICIOUS. Well definitely be making this again!!! (For the smaller piece of salmon I cooked it for 15 minutes, then under the broiler for about 4-5 minutes and it was just a tad overdone - will lower the time next time).Update: I made this again but used lime slices and lime juice. While it was still yummy, I think the lemon was definitely better. Still a great recipe and will use it again."
"Very tasty fish, but i wanted to use fresh dill on the sauce so I used a different recipe."
"The best recipe I have ever used for salmon, and the sauce is perfect."
"I love salmon and this recipe just provided me with my new favourite way to cook it. For once in my life, I didn't make any changes to the recipe or the method because it looked pretty good. Well, let me say ... it was WAY better than pretty good. The dill sauce was excellent too. Well deserving of a five star rating!"
"I made this - will make it again but prefer more dill and less horseradish - will use 1/2 teaspoon horseradish and full tsp dill."
"I tried this recipe while vacationing in Hawaii with the family...it was by far the best salmon I have ever made! So moist and the dill sauce was just the perfect added touch. Thank you Taste of Home. This is now a regular for when we have guests!"
