Moist and delish!! This is fabulous exactly as the recipe is written. The 0% fat yogurt forms a nice creamy layer on top. I use a full cup of yogurt on 24 oz. of salmon. I use a heaping tablespoon of mustard and the zest of the whole lemon. 3-4 tablespoons fresh chives are perfect but I'm sure fresh dill would be awesome too. I use a heaping tbsp. of horseradish. I have made it a few times and it doesn't need the bread crumbs at all but it's fine with them. You can't go wrong with this recipe. Just don't overcook. Great recipe, easy, delicious, impressive!! Oh, I used Fage brand greek yogurt with 0% fat. Regular plain yogurt is watery. I also cover it while it's cooking at 400 for about 20 minutes.

Very easy and the salmon was quite moist. I did have to cook a bit longer than stated though. No one else in the family seemed impressed though (sigh) so I am not sure I will make again.

This was very good and easy. My husband would probably give it 5 stars....he really loved it. Instead of the spray I drizzled a little melted butter, otherwise I followed recipe. I did not cover it, but did broil it a few minutes at end to brown top.

I LOVED this! I used greek yogurt since it's what I had. Because of the strong flavor I felt I needed to add more mustard. I also didn't have lemons or chives. I just used a splash of lemon juice. Still came out AMAZING! I loved it and so did my 3 year old. He especially liked to dip it in the left over yogurt mixture (since I cooked his a bit too long and it was a little dry.) Will surely be making it again!

Very good. SO who is very picky said I could serve it to company. That is a rave review

I wish I would have taken a picture of this. It was beautiful, and the picture with this recipe, while beautiful, is salmon with dill sauce (at least that what it looks like to me). Anyway, this was delicious. I used more horseradish than the recipe suggested, but only because we love horseradish. I spread a nice layer of the sauce on the salmon and then topped generously with panko breadcrumbs. Spraying the breadcrumbs with olive oil spray is the key. It was brown and crisp and amazing. Five Stars.
