This needs some spices or something. The lemon on its own isn't a very exciting flavor.

I used the whole lemon and seasoned my salmon with a light dusting of salt and pepper. I tossed the pasta and broccoli with the dressing and then used the rest on the salmon.

This was very tasty! I agree with the PP, though, a whole lemon in the sauce made it very strong. I liked it, but my daughter didn't quite care for the sauce because of that. Next time, I will squeeze the lemon over the salmon before cooking and only use 1/2 of the lemon in the sauce. Overall: Pretty good and not too hard!
