    Tasty meal. Everyone loved it. Fairly simple to make.

    I cut 2 - 6oz. Salmon steaks in half, squeezed the zoodles with paper towels to absorb the moisture while draining in a colander, added red pepper flakes, and went with Sriracha. Otherwise followed the recipe. Made it for the hubby, he loved it! Perfect healthy low-carb meal.

    Delicious and easy. This will return as a regular in our weeknight dinner rotation. I used spiraled frozen zucchini instead of fresh, which cut down on time even more. I cooked the zucchini separately in a sauce pan first, strained the water, and then sautéed in the butter/lemon sauce.
    One of my all time favorite recipes! Healthy, fast, easy, and absolutely full of flavor delicious!!

    Kind of bland. We’ve recently fallen in love with zucchini noodles, and have been experimenting a lot with cooking salmon well. I didn’t feel this “sauce” had much flavor

    Very flavorful! A really satisfying way to have zucchini noodles.

    My husband loved this! I tossed some pasta in with the zucchini for him, as he is a pasta fiend. I added onions and grape tomatoes as well. Instead of parsley I used basil because it is what I had on hand. I also used coconut oil instead of butter. Definitely will make this again.

    It turned out great ...I let my butter brown just a little bit.We enjoyed it.

    The recipe turned out well. Individually, each component was decent. However, when you take a bite with some zucchini and some salmon, that’s the real treat! The lemon takes well to the zucchini and, coupled with the salmon, imparts much deeper and more well-rounded flavor to the bite.

    The buttery sauce doesn’t look as brown and beautiful as in the pics 😒. But I’m excited to try this again. I added some pesto too for more flavor.

    was really good, hard to keep the salmon in one piece when flipping it though.

    I thought this had a very mild and below average flavor. I prepped the fish with a dusting of Kosher salt and let it rest in the fridge for a couple of hours, then seasoned half with McCormick's Lemon Pepper and the other half with McCormick's Garlic Pepper to test some seasonings. Like another reviewer, I used the juice and zest from one lemon which provided a strong citrus flavor - maybe too strong. I can't imagine how bland it would be without the additional seasonings. Also, with no mention of the temperature for cooking, I guessed at a medium high setting and found that gave a nice crispness to the surface of the fish without over cooking the interior. The 2-4 minute per side cooking time is ridiculously short by about 15 minutes. In the end, I'd suggest you choose another recipe.

    Great meal, I will make this again

    Super tasty. We used the whole lemon for juice and its zest, to have that extra citrus flavor. We didn't use zucchini noodles but I bet that would have been delicious. Will make again!!

    My husband said it was in the top 5 best dishes he’s ever eaten— homemade or restaurant. He absolutely adored it and wolfed down every bite. Helped that it’s fairly healthy too! I added a little bit more NANDO’s Peri Peri hot sauce and a teaspoon extra butter because the zucchini noodles looked dry...it was not necessary so next time I will stick to the recipe. Although my hubby loved the extra spice evidently!
