I use this recipe with a little twist. I mix the minced garlic/dill/lemon juice with soft butter. Then drop balls of the butter mixture with onions on the salmon & cook in foil in the oven or BarBQ. I always receive compliments on how moist & tasty the salmon turns out. Try it you'll love it!! Read More

Okay. Don't really like poached fish. Salmon seems to lose its distinctive taste cooked this way. Tried it once. That was enough. Read More

I made this recipe and the baked salmon II recipe at the same time. the baked salmon was great, full of flavor throughout the salmon. this one was great also but not as full of flavor. a little more bland but still was tasty. you really taste the good flavor of the salmon but with a nice taste on top. the other recipe was more infused in the whole flavor. probably cause the oil it calls for. this is lighter and i will probably make it again. thanx.

Very good we all loved it. I lined the foil with parchment instead of spraying with non stick spray. I also served it with a cold yogurt sauce consisting of plain yogurt, shallots, honey, fresh dill and lemon juice. Adding the scallions after the salmon was fully cooked also added a fresh taste and crunchy texture. Thanks! Read More

This is the best salmon recipe I've ever tried. It is wonderful!! I only used 1 pound of salmon and cooked for the full 25 minutes added a touch of olive oil left out the green onions and added a touch of crushed red pepper for spice. I also cut a few slits in the top of the salmon so the flavors would soak through. This hit the nail on the head..turned out amazing. Read More

I thought this was very good --and most importantly, easy. I don't understand why some users are calling it "bland." I like that it's rather mild (but still really tasty!). It doesn't overpower the taste of the salmon. I used dried dill, and squeezed the lemon juice over the fish, rather than topping it with slices, but only because I don't like an overly-lemony flavor and didn't want it to turn out too strong. Good recipe, and very easy! Read More

This was very good. I didn't have the dill, so I substitued italian spices and I used lemon juice instead of the slices. It was perfectly cooked and very tasty. I will be making this again. Read More

This was so easy. You just chop up some dill, green onions and garlic. Top with sliced lemons and bake in the oven. It was my first time making salmon and it couldn't have turned out better. It was so simple yet very flavorful. I paired this with a creamy dill sauce that included lemon juice, green onions and dill. I served this with Broccoli with Lemon Butter sauce. Read More

Excellent salmon recipe. When my husband saw the salmon sitting on the stove waiting to go into the oven he took the liberty of sprinkling lots of Montreal Seasoning (i think it was the spicy kind) all over the salmon fillet. It turned out delicious and of course I used about 15 garlic cloves that I mashed up with my motar and pestle and spread all over the fillet. I set my oven to low broil instead of 450 degress and it cooked for about 15 to 20 minutes. I cooked my fish on foil but I did not cover it. My husband then poured a little sake around the outside of the fish when I took it out of the oven. Needless to say the few changes we made turned out to be successful and we'll certainly rely on this recipe again in the future. Thanks for sharing. Read More

We were given 9 lbs. of FRESHLY CAUGHT salmon today. I needed a new recipe & the GARLIC SALMON by far was the best our family has ever eaten. I'd use 2 cloves garlic next time as the flavor was a bit strong for our 5 year old. Try with FRENCH FRIED ZUCCHINI STICKS & Dill Rice. Was wonderful! Read More
