Based on the flavors in this dish I knew I would like it but I was surprised how much my husband liked it! It tasted just like a pesto but with a nice twist using cilantro. I did think the garlic was a little strong for our taste so next time I would only use 2-3 average sized cloves. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This was a huge hit at my house! I didn''t bother with the food processor I just chopped by hand and the chunky texture was nice. I put it under the broiler for a minute at the end to crisp the topping. Great recipe! Read More

I happened upon this recipe by accident when out of interest I did a search for salmon and walnuts. This is a really lovely recipe. The only change I made was to add a bit of lime juice to the spread and extra garlic. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe. It's a keeper for me. Read More

Cooked it in the clay pot and it was delicious. The only thing I changed was to use olive oil instead of butter. Served with rice blend and salad. Read More

I made this for company on short notice and it turned out wonderful! The only change I made was the nuts; I used pistachios instead of walnuts because I didn't have any. I broiled them for about one minute before serving and it added a little crunch to it. This recipe is a keeper!!! Read More

Turned out Yummy! Hubby even liked it. I didn't have cilantro so I used parsley but I can't wait to make this again and try with that instead. Read More

I used a 1.92 lb coho fillet for 4 people with only 3 cloves of garlic as another reviewer recommended. All four of us are serious foodies and like to cook. This easy entrée was outstanding. We will use this again. Read More
