Where is the citrus? The only citrus is the lemon juice.

This was delicious! I baked it for appr 23 minutes in a shallow casserole at 350. Was afraid the flavors would be too strong, but Husband loved it. Will make again!

Very delicious! I actually boiled some orzo, cooled it, topped it with fresh arugula, and then put the salmon and sauce on top. It was GREAT! My fiancé loved it too!
