I took the advice of some readers and added a tablespoon of cornstarch the second time. it was absolutely delicious! I am certainly making this a regular dish in my house. served over brown rice with roasted cauliflower, it was fantastic!

This was an excellent way to cook salmon and such a healthy meal. I actually added about a teaspoon of cornstarch prior to adding sour cream and lemon. I allowed the mixture to cook about 3 minutes with the corn starch and the sauce was perfect. I also added sun dried tomatoes, basil, rosemary and a little garlic and cheese (absolutely divine). bon appetite

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!!
