Made this for a "snack" for my kiddo so I cut the recipe in half and subbed orange juice instead of lemon because he doesn't care for lemon and added some garlic and onion powder. I was really surprised how yummy this came out really flavorful and nice and moist. He loved it and I loved how easy it was. Read More

I really liked this not only for how fast and easy it is but for the flavor. I'm not a dill "freak" and the quantity seemed like a lot for the liquid involved. Also was leery of the sugar but wanted to make this exactly as the recipe states. I'm the first reviewer; but I'm also making this in honor of the author (BevF) who passed away a couple years ago I'm told. I hope she sees I'm a fan! Read More

I made this in my lekue microwave steamer and it turned out perfectly! I used rosemary because I didn't have any dill. This is definitely my new favorite recipe for salmon when I'm short on time. Read More

Very easy to make. Great flavor and not a lot of fuss or time required. I didn't have as much salmon, so mine was finished in five minutes. Also, I didn't have a casserole dish with a lid, so I just used some saran wrap and all went well. Read More

I love salmon any way it's cooked. I didn't have a lot of faith in this recipe because it was so easy and with only a few ingredients but it was delicious! I'll certainly use it again. My husband hates salmon and even he rates it a 4! It was moist and picked up the flavors of the seasoning. I loved the fact that the house wasn't smelling of fish! Read More
