We enjoy salmon and have been brought up on it, but the recipe add a kick. My husband does not like salmon and he even ate some. Will try again

We love and eat salmon a lot and am always looking for new recipes. This was excellent and too easy. A definite "keeper".

My husband is not a fan of "fancy" food, but he loves this. The cumin, in our estimation, is what makes this dish. I do pan fry, but it takes so little oil, I'm not concerned about it. I served with steamed green beans and Israeli couscous (the lemon zest, zante currants and pine nuts play very nicely with the lime and the cumin). This has become a fave.

Pretty good, I won't be sticking to only this recipe for salmon though. Not a fan of the cumin, the spice in general is too smoky or something like that. I think I expected more of a lime flavor. Made with a side of roasted vegetables it made for a good healthy meal.

I cut the recipe in half, thinking my sons would not want to eat the salmon with sour cream. Yet it was the sour cream mixture that made the salmon extraordinary. I have to note I baked the salmon vs. frying because I prefer not to fry our food. I also added more than the recommended teaspoon of lime to the sour cream mixture. I think the extra lime made the mixture pop; however, this is my personal preference. Others may prefer it as is.

Quick, easy, tasty, and likely very good for you! Very appealing to the eye, I love the color of the salmon flesh with the orangey-brown cumin. I enjoyed the whole thing just as presented, lime sauce and all. While my husband said he liked the sauce, he thinks he may like it without, too. The next time I make it, and there will be a next time, I think the sauce could stand a little more lime and spice, but I want to make it clear the sauce was very nice as stated.
