FANTASTIC. This is a great simple fresh recipe. As per the usual comment, I added a very small red hot chilli(seeds removed) to the marinade and it gave it a fantastic taste without being to hot and overpowering. Read More

This salmon turned out decent. I didn't have a food processor so I just mixed everything in a small bowl before rubbing it on. I'll be making this on days when I don't have much time to prepare food. Read More

Very tasty (if you LOVE garlic!) which we do. I only used 1/2 head garlic, it was about 12 cloves, and the whole pkg. of fresh dill just as called for (1 oz). I used fresh gound sea salt, and put some lemon juice and some sprinkles of brown sugar (about 1T. total) on the salmon first. Then I topped it with the dill-garlic paste, and let it sit at room temp about 1 hour. Baked @ 400* for 15-20 monutes. It was great. (I pitty the poor people I have to see tomorrow...garlic breath YIKES!!!) Read More

This was absolutely terrific-I will definitely make it again. I actually sealed ours in foil to marinate and cooked it that way in the oven. Made it with the Dill Sauce from this site-terrific combination! Read More

15 minutes was the perfect amount of time to bake this but it was stuck to the pan! But it tastes awesome if you are a garlic lover which I am. Probably should put some foil down next time...;) Didn't have any fresh dill so I used dill weed; if you do this you need to use more than you think otherwise you'll hardly taste it because the garlic will overpower it. But YUM! Read More

The garlic and dill overpowered the salmon. I would never make this recipe again. Read More

had to add some serious lemon zest but it was overall great! Not a HUGE salmon fan but enjoyed the spices that perked it up! Read More
