    It was really delicious! I used 2 tbsp unsalted butter and it gave it more sauce to go around. Otherwise it was awesome!! Definitely will be making again.

    It was okay, my fiancé liked it. I wasn’t the biggest fan. Probably would try a different salmon recipe next time.

    We enjoyed it. The seasoning was nice but could have been stronger - I bet it would have been excellent with a marinade. Served it alongside easy boxed pine nut cous cous and a arugula side salad.
