Reviews for Melt-in-Your-Mouth Broiled Salmon
Love this recipe but would like to know if the broiler should be on high or low?
DELISH DISH. :) I broiled it a little longer to get a crispy exterior...husband approved, kid approved & toddler approved! I didn't have white wine on hand, so used a dash of white wine vinegar & it was a nice flavor. As per the video's suggestion, I used coconut oil instead of olive oil.
A nice change to plain butter dill sauce. I had to quarter the recipe since I only had one salmon steak. I also had to substitute water for wine, so I'll try it again.
Amazing! I don't have "fines" so I used Italian seasoning. I also mixed the dill in with the butter sauce. Juicy and delicious.
It was perfect. Cooked a minute too long. Wonderful flavor. Easy instructions. Be better with thicker filets. A favorite now!!!
made the recipe as is. Will make again and again.
Husband and I liked this. Actually he loved it*. Followed the recipe with what I had on hand.. I did omit the olive oil based on other reviews. I didn't have Fine Herbs so substituted Basil, Tarragon, dried chives, and dried dill. The left over sauce was wonderful for dipping the garlic naan I served with it. I will make again. *Allergies dulled my taste buds a bit so the sauce on the fish was a it too subtle or me to taste. The concentrated sauce was lovely.
Not a good flavor combo. None of us liked the flavor. I would not make it again.
I didn't do the separate olive oil/garlic in the microwave but otherwise followed the basic recipe. My whole family loved it and can't wait until I make it again.
Eye balled all ingredients without any exact measurement, added a splash of lemon juice, used extra virgin olive oil, dried herbs, dill and a Italian seasoning mix that contained basil, oregano, savory, thyme, rosemary and marjoram. One large table spoon of butter. I am very partial to garlic, I used roughly 2 heads of garlic, keep in mind that after broiling the flavor of the garlic will be much more subtle. Put in microwave for 30 seconds which was enough to melt the butter, i think if you put in for the suggested minute and a half you would have a real mess and it would be overcooked. Don't understand where the duration of the recipe comes from as from the time I prepped to fork in hand and eating was 20 minutes. Great recipe, very time efficient and will definitely be making in the future.
this was great it stopped my family from arguing for a meal.
Yes. It was a bit greasy, but easily solved by reducing butter. I cooked it 4 minutes on each side instead of 3, and it was still a tad pink in the middle, which is fine for most folk.
Added fresh shrimp...AWESOME!!!
Mmmm this IS melt in your mouth salmon! I made it with what we had in hand (subbed with lemon pepper spice, white wine vinegar diluted with water and no dill). After the required cooking time I re-basted and broiled closer to the broiler for another 2 minutes.
Hubby and I agree we'll definitely make this one again!
Delicious. All I had on hand was garlic, sea salt, lemon juice, olive oil, black pepper, and butter, and still turned out great.
I would only change the time I broiled the filets for a couple more minutes each side. Mine were pretty thick. Even at that, they were delish!
Excellent recipe! My kids ate it all! I did not have fine herbes, so I substituted with herbes de province. Next time, I would use a smidge less butter and oil, as some seemed to go to waste. However, I broiled on a large pan, so the butter coated the fish instead of pooling around it, so we had no issue with greasiness. I also added some cooking time, turning every 5 minutes instead of 3, as the fish was frozen upon starting.
It was good but too much butter
very moist!! excellent!!
I think its the Best fish recipe I ever made, my husband loved it!! I also cut oil In half. I sauted garlic slightly in the melted butter on stove not microwave. I didn't have fresh dill i used a little freeze dried and some fresh basil, oregano and tyme,
Not very tasty to me.
Turned out great! There is no need for so much butter and oil but using Herbs de Provence, Worchestershire sauce and lemon juice worked great. I added garden tarragon, dried oregano, and a pinch of saffron, and chopped garlic instead of garlic salt and it was popping. I liked the guidance on the time. Checking and basting every few minutes kept it from overcooking, which is so easy to do with salmon. Fish loves butter, but I didn't even use half as much and it was mighty fine.
Best salmon I've every made!
Worst recipe for salmon I ever tried. It melts in your mouth because it’s so greasy. Wasted 4 perfectly good salmon fillets on this. was very disappointed and embarrassed when the people I cooked for didn’t like it lol. Don’t recommend
I’m not a fan of Salmon. The word, “Yuck!” is the first thing that usually comes to mind when I think of it. But I promised myself I would try to add salmon to my diet, even if I don’t like it, because of its health benefits. That means I had to figure out how to make it palatable. This recipe did the trick! My salmon was delicious!
Excellent recipe. I suggest a few changes to the method. I recommend broiling it on a broiler pan. Rather than cooking garlic in the oil in the microwave, saute the garlic in the oil a couple minutes in a pan on the stove, then add in the melted butter and remaining ingredients. I brushed on the butter mixture rather than spooning it on. Broiled it skin side up 6 minutes, flipped & broiled another 6 minutes. We didn't find it greasy at all. Very tasty. It was a big hit, and definitely a make-again recipe. Thanks!
It was awesome!!
I actually used soy sauce as substitute for the Weinstein’s sauce. It was fabulous I also baked it instead of broiling it.
Was delicious! Good thing because I about had a heart attack when I saw the sauce that had spilled on the side was on fire! The flames got frighteningly large as I raced to pull the pan out of the oven and put it out. But the salmon was pretty tasty. (Will probably not do it this way again though.)
while I'm pretty sure I didn't follow the directions *exactly*, I followed the basic plan of a nice garlic-olive oil infusion in butter, salt, tarragon, parsley, lemon zest and juice... brushed on some before broiling for 5-6 minutes, brushed on some more after pulling from the oven. not greasy, not oily, but very, Very yummy! used a frozen fillet since we're out of season. also, let salmon come to room temp with a sprinkle of kosher salt and pepper before broiling. will make this again and again and again... ...and again! sides are ina garten's simple asparagus and a side salad with mixed greens and spinach, red onions, cherry tomatoes and homemade vinagrette.
This was quick...easy...and delicious! I omitted the dill (not a fan) even without, it lacked nothing. I prepared according to recipe and paired the Salmon with Jasmine Rice (drizzled with sauce from salmon with a sprinkle of parsley on top) and Roasted Asparagus topped with a cheese blend of Asiago, Romano, and Parmesan.
I followed the recipe exactly, except for not having any white wine, and it was spectacular.
We have a new way to cook salmon here.
I wonder what other fish would work with this recipe. Really delicious 👍👍
I gave it 3 stars as the base recipe is good, but needed more flavour. So I added a light layer of liquid honey, used lemon pepper instead of regular pepper, used fresh garlic, and sprinkled some chervil on top before broiling. I basted in white wine, melted butter, and lemon juice. When cooked I lightly drizzled the remaining butter mixture . It was delicious and have got great feedback on it.
I followed the recipe as written, only leaving out the dill that I didn't have. I did not find it greasy at all. It was cooked perfectly; tender and perfectly moist, with good flavor. I will definitely make it again. Thank you.
I have also used this as a marinade for grilled Salmon. I marinade for about 20 minutes and then grill the salmon. Delicious!
I cut the garlic and oil to 1 T and the butter to 1/4 cp. I don't like cooking with that much oil as this is naturally an oily fish. It is an incredible recipe and will definitely use again! Thank you!
I’m rating the recipe as it is written. I found this “melt in your mouth broiled salmon” to be overcooked, too greasy, and the flavor honestly wasn’t amazing. The recipe didn’t start all that promisingly. My impulse was to ignore the instructions to cook the garlic in the microwave with the olive oil for 1.5 minutes: why not just Cook the garlic gently in the olive oil on the stovetop before adding the butter? But I went ahead and followed the recipe to use the microwave for 1.5 minutes and ended up with a smoking, stinking, burned sludge of blackened garlic oil. Not an auspicious beginning. I love butter and use quite a lot in day-to-day, but the quantity used in this recipe was way too much. The fillets were swimming in the sauce by the time the recipe was done, and I wound up throwing 75% or more of it out. The wine-butter-garlic sauce wasn’t very tasty: I didn’t feel that it enhanced the natural flavor and butteriness of the salmon at all. Cooking the fillets for the listed amount of time resulted in overcooked, chalky dry salmon. I’ve never seen instructions to cook salmon fillets on-end and will not be doing that again: there was no point and it just resulted in extra work. Overall, this recipe was a disappointment and I will not be making it again.
The only thing I changed was decreased the amount of butter. Overall taste was good, and simple to make.
Well I am salt restricted, so all spices are salt free, Mrs dash us my mist go to. That said, I add lots of other spices, mace taragon,fresh lemon juice, then top it off with paprika. Only problem I run into is getting filet to reach 140°,it has taken considerable time over what's recommended, then it's kind of dry. My oven had a digital thermometer that's accurate,so I am assured of the baking temp,have used bottom,middle & top rack setting still same. Can't figure what's going wrong.
it was a great break from traditional garlic, butter and dill.
Hubby just told me it was his most favorite meal this year and that the salmon tasted as good as what we'd get in a nice restaurant. I did make a few modifications based on other reviews: 1/2 TB oil (used a garlic flavored grapeseed oil), 1 TB butter, didn't have white wine so I used white wine vinegar, instead of garlic salt used 1/2 tsp sea salt, used 1/2 tsp each of two different herb blends I had (garlic/herb and dill blend); Broiled skin side up for 5 minutes, flipped then added more marinade and broiled for 3 mins, added a little more marinade and broiled for another 3 minutes. Served with quinoa/brown rice blend with roasted red pepper/basil and steamed veggies. SOOO Good!!!
Very easy. Moist and tender. I did go a bit lighter on the butter and it turned out very good.
Tried this tonight and was pleasantly surprised. My hubby and I thought it was a very nice, mellow salmon dish. It went excellent with mashed potatoes and sauvignon blanc.
There are a lot of flavors floating around in the butter sauce, but they don't seem to compete and they don't overpower the salmon itself. It keeps the fish moist and tender, too, even the thin bits. I thought at first it might be a lot of work, but it wasn't that hard and didn't take that long.
This was Amazing Salmon recipe! We had it with stir fried carrots and snow peas. Yummy!! Will definitely make this salmon recipe again??
I will make it again. I enjoyed it. Only I'd use 1 less Tblsp of lemon juice and a light sprinkle of parmesan cheese over fillets just before serving.
Made this today because I couldn’t find our standard broiled salmon fillet that we’ve used and loved. This was quite good, but I’ll keep on hunting for the other one, too
Played with a little bit. Not at all crazy about citrus in food--so was hesitant but did. Didn't have all of seasonings included for the---finers herbs. Used parsley, tarragon, marjoram--didn't have chives so used a dash of onion powder. Did not at all like the taste--was missing something!!! Added some coriander & even (stupidly) couple dashes of old bay. Just didn't quite have that taste was after. But once tweaked was really happy with the outcome!!! Still the citrus but complemented! If make again might cut back on that a tad
Turned out great - will try again next week!
I'm always running late on dinner and this is SO FAST! I used soy sauce instead of worchestershire sauce and served with balsamic vinegar glaze.
Excellent! Lots of flavor and easy to make. This will become one of my "go to" recipes for salmon. Plan to make it for company this week.
Great recipe - Yes, I did make a few changes based on other reviews and what I had...melted minced garlic, 2 tbsp butter and 1 tbsp EVOO in saucepan. Added Trader Joe's 21 seasoning salute, (I don't have fine herbs). Added Worcestershire and lemon juice, but skipped the wine (forgot). Simply poured, basted the top of the fish in a sprayed baking dish and broiled for 8 minutes. Serviced with Parmesan rice and broccoli. Delicious and easy!
This was so tasty broiled and a nice change from marinades we usually use. I cut the ingredients in half so the fish wouldn't be swimming in liquid.
Used the mixture to baste (not pour over) a broiled sockeye salmon filet and it was wonderful! Ours didn’t turn out oily at all as some reviewers mentioned. Basting with the prepared sauce imparted a lovely light flavor that brought out the richness of the salmon.
I made this to the original recipe (aside from preparing the sauce on the stovetop instead of the microwave) then served it on a bed of fried spinach over steamed long grain rice. Nice presentation, and everyone in my family of 5 licked their plates. Lots of the butter sauce left over in the pan - could do with less waste, I suppose.
Update: I made this again, this time with fines herbs and without garlic salt. Delicious, but next time I will omit the butter - I only used 3 tbsp and it was still greasier that I would prefer.
I've already made it twice! It was good. I tweaked it a little because of the ingredients I had on hand, and liked it - using garlic powder instead of fresh, and left off the fines herbs & dill.
I loved it!! I've made it serval times and everyone raves about it. I made it exactly like the recipe stated.
I didn't have garlic salt so just used regular sea salt and this was tasty. Kids loved it.
GREAT,WE USED A LITTLE MORE GARLIC,ONLY BECAUSE WE LOVE ALOT OF GARLIC.AND I USED A LITTLE EXTRA LEMON ZEST.
Very moist and perfect donenss. Kids even gobbled it up.
It is absolutely delicious......
Simple, quick and tasty! I would broil this again for a weekday meal.
Oh my goodness! So good and easy to make! So glad I tried it1
I left out the oil and it was fantastic! Will absolutely use this recipe again and again! A bit less cooking time. Love it rare.
I loved this recipe
I made this tonight. Cut down on the butter and olive oil, sprayed Pam on foil just as the recipe said. Set the oven to broil 6” from the element and it caught fire. Salmon survived after I got the fire out and tasted good. Be very careful with this recipe because of the combination of butter, olive oil and Pam.
I didn't have all of the ingredients, so I switched it up a little. I used 3 cloves of garlic and used an extra tablespoon of lemon juice and 1 T tamari sauce to make up for not having the Worcestershire sauce. I didn't have Fines herbs, so I subbed 1 teaspoon of Thyme. It turned out AWESOME. Melt-in-Your-Mouth is right! My husband and son LOVED it. It's really an easy recipe, which I love, and it tastes like something that would have been marinated and took hours of prep, which never works for me! I try to have everything done, start to finish in less that 20-30 min and this worked out great. I had much wider filets, so I just did 3 minutes with the skin down, 3 minutes up and then 3 minutes down. I think next time I'll leave the skin up a little longer, because it would be amazing just slightly more crispy!
We loved it with the buttery/dill flavor. I followed the recipe exactly including broiling times. I found the fish slightly overdone because the fillets were thin 6 oz filets. I would try it again with thicker 8 oz filets. There is more than enough sauce in this recipe.
Mine turned out a little overcookes
I made this in a pan first time and broiled the second time. Really very good over rice. I do not like salmon normally, but this is really good. I also used the sauce to bake cod and spinach over rice that tasted fantastic too!
I've made this 4 times and we love it. The only difference in the recipe for me was i can't find "fines" seasoning but it's still great without it.
This was delicious!
great and easy. Didn't use fresh dill-just added 1 tsp of dried dill to the butter sauce. I did not turn them (because they wouldn't stand). It didn't say whether to broil on hi and lo. I started on hi, and it looked like it was going too fast, so I switched to lo and it wasn't done after the 9 minutes. I cut salmon into smaller pieces (I had 1.5 lbs of salmon not cut) and switched it for hi for 3-5 miunutes and it was done. Next time, I will cut them in personal size portions before broiling.; made this again, no flavor, boring
One of my all-time favorite recipes. I never have fines herbs, so I usually substitute variations of basil, parsley, rosemary, and oregano. I use slightly less butter and oil than the recipe calls for and may not use all of the sauce (depends on how many and what size salmon filets). I also do everything other than broiling the fish in the microwave to save on time and dishes. I make this at least twice a month because it is so quick and easy (and easy clean-up!) and delicious.
This was wonderful. I had a very thick salmon fillet and it took alot longer than this to cook, like fifteen minutes and the center was still not done. Nonetheless the butter sauce was terrific
Cut down on the oil and butter. Broil time is perfect! Salmon is just cooked enough. The fresh herbs you use either makes or breaks the "secret sauce". I used a salmon tarragon mixture that was outstanding. Serve with wild rice and fresh green beans. Magnificent!
Came out great! Followed ingredients and only 1 small change: sautéed evoo and butter with garlic at same time w/o microwave. Came out fantastic!
Perfectly paired with Monday! Flakey, well-seasoned, very easy! Delicious. I omitted white wine, and it was perfect. Definitely saving this one to Favorites!
We got wild caught salmon and looked for simple and quick recipe. This recipe is AWESOME. Normally, I don't like salmon smell much. This recipe, however, somehow does not make the salmon smell too bad (for 2 servings, I used 2 cloves of garlic, parsley and frigs of thyme - that's all I had in my fridge.) Considered myself as a needed cook, it came out so good. Anyways, if I can make it, I believe you can too.
This was wonderful. Flavorful and moist. Will make again.
YUM! so easy to make and was delicious. My whole family loved it.
