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.
