    I am giving this recipe a 5 star even though I changed it. Both my children liked the salmon and that makes my life easier!! When I began the prep. I realized I was out of sage so I just used what I had: thyme, paprika, and lemon pepper. I had cayenne but omitted due to the little ones. Then I added garlic, some ginger and a bit of dill. Cooked the salmon with virgin olive oil in a skillet and towards the end of the process I threw in some sherry and put a lid on and simmered for about 5-10 minutes. I did not add any salt. Results: My 3 year old had thirds, and my 5 year old had seconds.  -  05 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Really good recipe. I made this twice in one week since it was simple and elegant. I served this to company. I used olive on the bottom instead of spray. I added fresh garlic and rock salt to the herb mix. This is a keep.  -  13 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
