Thank you for reviewing this recipe.



I'm always searching for new recipes. I made it and it was just great. Im so happy to find this recipe thank you.

no dissapointment here

This came out really well, despite a late arriving guest for whom it was held in a warm oven and sauced at serving. I used Gallo Cafe Chardonnay which may not be as dry as the author intended, but I liked it.

I think my expectations were a little too high for this one after reading all of the rave reviews. I thought this recipe was good, but not extraordinary. Poaching the salmon was a great new idea for me, and I liked it, but thought the flavor of the orange sauce would be more prominent in the meal. For me, the recipe was average.

Great salmon dish!

The orange flavored salmon was terrific! I also added to the veggies potatoes and sweet pepper. We loved it!
