One evening when my husband and I went out to dinner, he ordered a salmon dish that sounded interesting. It was wonderful. When I tried duplicating it at home, he said mine was as good as, if not better than, the original. That made my day!

Great dish and so easy to make. However, I did not have macadamian nuts so I substitued for slivered almonds. We loved it. Next time I'll try it with macadamian nuts, I'm sure that will be just as good if not better. I think any nuts will serve as a good substitue. Thanks for the great recipe. Read More

My husband absolutely loved it - but I have my reservations. I also added grated parmesan to the macadamia nuts and I think that was the redeeming quality, otherwise it would have been bland. I was disappointed in the lemon butter sauce - too buttery and not enough lemon! Should have been at least 1:1 butter to lemon ratio. Beautiful presentation however, that with the addition of parmesan made it an easy 4 star recipe! Read More

Absolutely wonderful! I was out of macadamia nuts so I used cashews and the filets came out delicious! I used light butter, doubled the lemon juice and added a bit of salt to the sauce. I will definitely be making this again. Extra lemon juice and any chopped up nuts should work. Yum! Thank you for a great recipe! Read More

This recipe was really easy to make but I have to agree with the other comments that it did not have much flavor. Read More

I used cashews because I couldn't find any macadamia nuts and this dish was pretty much amazing. This was the first time I cooked fish and it was an easy confidence builder. Read More

This was just okay. Maybe I had too high of expectations, but I thought this would have more flavor. i wasn't really impressed and neither was my boyfriend. I don't think i would make this again. It was just missing something. Read More
