    White wine vinegar, Dijon mustard and herbs make this a truly memorable way to cook salmon. I made it the other night and everyone said that it was the best fish they'd had!

    Wow! Very easy to make and it was a hit with my husband! I baked the salmon for about 15 minutes in the marinade and then removed the salmon from the marinade and baked it another 10 minutes on a baking sheet.  -  11 Aug 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made the vinaigrette part for a salad. I didn't use the sun-dried tomatoes, but added some parmesan and a little splenda to taste. Pretty good for a lo-cal salad dressing. Next time I think I will omit the lemon juice though, because it was a bit tart (hense the splenda), but then again it wasn't meant to be a salad dressing. Also, rinse the capers! They are very briny!  -  15 Mar 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My husband liked this recipe but I didn't really care for it.  -  30 Nov 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
