    This was so easy and everyone loved it. Highly recommended for those who like a bit of spice!  -  21 Aug 2011


    I find salmon rich enough and so I don't use the butter. Instead I brush with olive oil and a squeeze of lemon. Or you can brush with balsamic dressing (Renee's is nice). I wash and freeze my cilantro which makes it very easy to chop finely and it is "wilted" and perfect for the recipe so you don't have to sautee in butter. For colour I like to add a couple of thinly sliced rings of red pepper. Voila! lower in fat - no trans fat from the butter and pretty too!!  -  28 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Excellent! I too thought butter might be too heavy so I brused the salmon with olive oil and squeezed fresh LIME juice only compliments the cilantro and jalepeno flavor..yummy!  -  20 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
