    I must have done something wrong- I broiled the salmon with the rub on it (like they suggested) and it was completely blackened ... not at all like the picture.

    Wow this was good for being such a simple recipe with very few ingredients. Since I do not like salmon, I used tilapia. The topping has quite a nice kick from the peppercorns and fresh garlic. A tip....broiler a little further than normal from the heat source otherwise the garlic will burn and taste bitter. I served with roasted potato wedges. I also rubbed olive oil over the fish so it would not be so dry.

    Followed the recipe as directed and it came out wonderful! It is full of flavor and will become a summertime favorite for our family. It is also incredibly easy to make. Served this dish with a brown rice pilaf and broccoli.

    Very flavorful and super easy to make. I doubled the rub because it didn't seem like enough and was glad I did- it was the perfect amount. Will definitely make again

    This was a huge wonderful surprise! I thought these ingredients were too simple to taste that good. I was wrong. The flavors were so nice and this recipe was so easy. The kids loved it. I served it with brown rice and lemony garlic broccoli

    This was really good! I brushed a tablespoon of olive oil over the four salmon steaks, and I doubled the spice rub. The suggested quinoa salad is really good too! I used dried chives this time in the quinoa salad but will probably use fresh chives next time. I will definitely make this again.

    I thought the seasoning was balanced well. It wasn't overpowering, as that often seems to be the problem with fish spices. The lime adds a sweet twist! I paired the salmon with a pea and rice mixture.. Next time I'll just have to add a glass of wine :)

    This was so easy and truly a delicious way to prepare salmon, the lime added such great flavor. Served with recommended quinoa-vegetable salad, which was soooo good. Would definetly make this again.

    This was a big hit with my husband and 14 year old son. They both had seconds. EXCELLENT!!

    Incredibly easy & superfast. The lime/garlic/peppercorn was perfect on the salmon. Made the recommended hot salad before the fish went under the broiler, subbing basmati for the quinoa. Served with wilted spinach. Excellent meal.

    Nice tangy fish, quinoa a bit bland - I added some extra lime juice and it was a bit better.

    Simple and flavorful - I grilled the salmon and used a little extra garlic. I would serve this to guests but it is easy enough for every day.

    Good taste and not complicated at all. Definitely use 2T of grated lime rind (about 2 small limes). I only had one and I couldn't taste the lime. Even 2T may not be enough as I couldn't get the rub to spread on all of the salmon filets. I served this with salad and rice pilaf.
