I had a craving for fresh fish and dill, so I played around and came up with this. Its been rated one of my greatest hits! Great with rice or potatoes and steamed green beans.

Let me start by saying salmon is not mine and hubby's favorite so we are particular with how it is cooked. With that being said, I did make a couple of changes. I think this recipe would be good as written but we like our salmon with some char on it that the grill brings. So, instead of baking in the oven I did grill it and I added some chili flakes because we like our salmon spicy. I made the butter sauce as directed except that fresh dill is nearly impossible to find in my area so I keep a jar of freeze dried dill on hand at all times. Not quite the same but not too shabby either. The butter sauce /dill combo is excellent and pairs very nicely with salmon. This is an excellent recipe and one I would definitely recommend. Read More

Except for changing out salmon for orange roughy which I already had in the freezer I followed the recipe to a T. We thought the sauce was somewhat bland. Other than some salt I don't know what else the sauce needed but it DID need something else to "lift" the flavors up. It IS low-carb so for those watching carbohydrate intake this recipe is a good choice. Uncomplicated too and could be easily made on a work night. Read More

I didn't cook it as long as it as it said because I like my salmon medium. Other than that it turned out perfect. I used a 2 lb filet to feed my family served it with a wild rice blend ( which went wonderfully with the butter sauce ) and fresh broccoli. There were no leftovers! Read More

I used 4 thick strips of salmon with no skin. The marinade baked into the whole piece and was so delicious. I served it over spinach sauteed in oil,butter and garlic. Will definitely make this again! Read More

Here's proof that a great dish doesn't have to be difficult to make. Actually "great" falls short of describing this "oh my gosh this is really really really good!" Ideal for company because you 1) put it in the oven and set the timer and 2) pull it out of the oven sprinkle the almonds and bring to the table. Read More
