"Great recipe except I can not afford $ 15 a pound for salmon....I refuse to buy "farmed" fish as I feel it pollutes our environment... "

Wow, this was delicious and very fast and easy. I used a whole sweet onion instead of shallots (don't like them), so the sauce was chunky. It was *so* good! I'll be making this many more times.

This recipe was SUPER EASY, SO QUICK, and SIMPLY DELICIOUS!!! The salmon was tender and flavorful, and the sauce REALLY complimented it. My family raved about this dish & agreed it was something you'd expect from an expensive restaurant. I served the salmon with brown rice and steamed asparagus. I did let the sauce simmer a little longer than directed to thicken - but I topped the brown rice with some of the extra and it was divine. Will definitely make it again!

I heeded everyone's advise and allowed extra time for the sauce to cook down. It was simply delicious. I loved the crunchness of the shallots and the tang the capers added. I served with cooked spinach and a side dish of quinoa with carrots/celery. It's hard to find a good meal like that in a restaurant!!

Am I missing something? 1/2 cup wine combined with 1/4 cup sour cream results in broth, not sauce. Had to remake sauce to be able to use it at all.

This was a fantastically simple dish to prepare, and my boyfriend LOVED it (so did I)! I served it with brown rice, and saved the other two pieces of salmon with some of the sauce in individual containers, and then had lunch for two days, too! The sauce really makes this dish!
