I really liked this, not only for how fast and easy it is, but for the flavor. I'm not a dill "freak", and the quantity seemed like a lot for the liquid involved. Also was leery of the sugar, but wanted to make this exactly as the recipe states. I'm the first reviewer; but I'm also making this in honor of the author (BevF), who passed away a couple years ago I'm told. I hope she sees I'm a fan!

Very easy to make. Great flavor and not a lot of fuss or time required. I didn't have as much salmon, so mine was finished in five minutes. Also, I didn't have a casserole dish with a lid, so I just used some saran wrap and all went well.
