"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

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.
I followed this recipe exactly but I have to say I wasn't too pleased with the flavour. It just tasted like mayo and sour cream. Me and my family didn't like it that much, and I won't be making it again. I guess this is a good recipe for people that like a cream sauce on their salmon. For us, we prefer a light and fresh taste for salmon as opposed to a heavy cream sauce.
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.
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.
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.
Awesome recipe. I love salmon, but suck at cooking it so I've always had to buy the pre-done stuff which is not all that good or pay for an expensive restaurant dish that is good, but not something I can afford often. Biggest problem I have: my salmon always turn out to dry and whatever sauce I try never makes the dry salmon any better. This recipe takes care of *everything*. Succulent, juicy salmon and a sacue to die for. Great recipe! Thanks for sharing it. Now I can have affordable, yummylicious salmon any time!!!
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.
