Made this for a "snack" for my kiddo so I cut the recipe in half and subbed orange juice instead of lemon because he doesn't care for lemon and added some garlic and onion powder. I was really surprised how yummy this came out really flavorful and nice and moist. He loved it and I loved how easy it was.

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!

I made this in my lekue microwave steamer and it turned out perfectly! I used rosemary because I didn't have any dill. This is definitely my new favorite recipe for salmon when I'm short on time.
