Recipe by Good EatNZ
"I served this with spaghetti. I tossed the hot, drained noodles with enough of the sauce to coat, plated the spaghetti, topped with the salmon and dressed the salmon with another dollop of the sauce, and garnished with a few more capers."

I love this recipe and so did my young children! I did have some substitutions. I didn't use the onion salt or lemon wedges, but used garlic powder and lemon pepper on the salmon, in addition to the butter. I left out the wine , the capers, the brine and used mustard horseradish and plain yoghurt instead of the sour cream.
I will make this over and over again.
This was really good! I left out the butter and drizzled a dill, fennel flavored olive oil instead. I baked this on the BBQ instead of the oven and served it with orzo, chopped red pepper, green onion, zucchini, and some shredded parmesan.
The sauce was excellent. I will make it again. The capers were so yummy. I also used that dill in the tubes. So tasty.
We really liked both the salmon and the sauce. I did double the dill and add 1/2 tsp of black pepper, while omitting the wine because I didn't have any on hand. The only thing keeping this from being 5 stars is that the sauce was a little much for the fish. My husband and I both agree that this recipe is a keeper- though in the future we'll leave the sauce off of the fish and save it for veggies.
Very good...I did not have wine, so used a little vinegar instead,also a little sugar.
I have never reviewed a recipe. This one was a MUST! This was the BEST dill sauce I have ever had. I have tried replicating a local restaurant's sauce with no luck...which was the only reason I always ordered the salmon dish...for the dill sauce. I am so pleased with this recipe, that now I actually like this one better. The only thing I didn't put in it was the onion and simply because I didn't have any.
Ok, to be honest I bought the raw stuffed salmon from Costco and was looking for a creamy dill sauce to pair with it...I was stoked to find this! The sauce is to die for...and really, it's totally open to just add more or add less depending on your liking of certain ingredients. I didn't have any white wine so I didn't add it and honestly I don't feel like it's missing anything. I put about three times the amount of capers but left the caper juice at what was called for. I also put much more dill. SOOOOO good! I'm making cheese tortellini to go with it all and plan to put the sauce onto the pasta.
Made this tonight and everyone seemed to love it. I used green onions instead of regular onions and chicken broth instead of the wine but otherwise followed the directions. I made extra sauce to stir into some pasta for a side dish. The salmon turned out wonderful and the pasta was creamy and flavorful. My husband didn't want to try at it at first because it had mayo in it but once I convinced him he loved it. So did the kids. Definitely going to make again.
