Very flavorful rendition for a salmon bake. Only alteration I would recommend would be to replacing cheddar with an italian or white cheese of some type. It will suit the salmon and onion flavors much better... It is also good when placing a row of asparagus spears lining underneath the fish when baked. It soaks in the juices and spices and providing a complimentary side vegetable... Read More

I made this just like the recipe. The cheese and salmon seemed to cancel each other out. It didn't taste bad just kind of bland. Read More

I thought that using Cheddar sounded sort of gross on salmon so I chose to not use the Cheddar or the onion and instead I substituted in Chèvre cheese (soft goat cheese) and mixed it with chopped walnuts dill and 1 tsp. garlic. When you place the salmon back into the oven the cheese and nuts will brown slightly but not melt. I think that the Chèvre and walnuts complements the flavor of the fish much better than the cheddar. I used a 1:1 ratio of walnuts and Chèvre. I have made this recipe many times and it is my husband's and my absolute favorite plus the walnuts add even more healthy omega-3!! Read More

Very flavorful and a new way to bake Salmon for me. I edited the recipe a little based on personal taste and others reviews. I changed the cheddar cheese to a baby swiss added 4 finely chopped garlic cloves less dill and lightly drizzled olive oil beneath the cheese to keep the Salmon moist. The flavor was very complimentary! We laid asparagus spears on the bottom of the foil and they were cooked to perfection! Read More

Mmmmmm, good! My husband is not a fan of salmon, but he liked this and would like it more often, so that's saying a lot! Kids liked it, too! I did a few things different, but not much. I didn't have green onions on hand and I used Mexican shredded cheese on top (we always have that in the house, so it's what I use). Served with steamed califlower and diced baked red potatoes. Yummy, can't wait to have it again! Thanks for the great recipe! Read More

I couldn't find a 'baked' salmon recipe anywhere and to think to put cheese on it also was delicious! I used paprika instead of dill weed because I didn't have any but it was still a wonderful and easy dish! Thanks Read More

I also baked it on top of asparagus. I sprinkled mine with some dry parmesan spread mix and a couple pats of butter. I then eliminated the cheese on top. Superb! Read More

I just recently started experimenting with salmon recipes and it probably will not become one of my favorite foods... but.. this recipe is a very good one! It was really very nice and I do recommend adding extra cheese. For those of you who love salmon you'll love this recipe. I liked it even tho salamon isn't my dish. Read More

I usually grill or broil the salmon and really wanted to try something different. I must say this was delicious and I would certainly make it again for our guests. The combination of the cheddar cheese with the green onions was not as overpowering as I thought it would be. And baking the fish in foil made it tender and flaky. Very different than what I am accustomed to when it's grilled. It melted in my mouth and was just what I was looking for. Read More
