Review 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!
I was surprised at how good it was. This is my favorite so far!
Excellent and easy
This was a very simple dish to prepare with excellent results. Very healthy, looks great, tastes even better. One change I'll make the next time, though, is to cook the zucchini/carrots in a separate frypan at the same time that I'm poaching the salmon; I felt that having the veggies wait while the salmon poached allowed them to wilt a little more and lost a little heat (even being kept in a warm oven). Otherwise, I will definitely be making this dish regularly!
This was perfect for me.
I am new at cooking and my fiancee is a great cook so, i have a major challenge for me every time I cook. This was so easy and tasty that my fiancee couldn't believe that I actually cooked it.
