Reviews for Salmon Fillets with Creamy Dill
Good recipe - I'm not the biggest fan of mustard though. Little too sour for my taste. Overall pretty good dish.
Very tasty. You may find yourself adding more dill than is called for. Like many others I used a mix of yogurt and mayo to lighten it up a bit. Also, the longer you let the sauce sit, the stronger it becomes. I had some leftover sauce and used it the next day in a dip and it was great.
This was very good, but I agree with the other reviews that say that it makes too much sauce. Definitely halve the mayonnaise and mustard. I did that, and additionally added 1/4 cup white wine, which thinned the sauce, making it easier to spread. I didn't even use all the sauce, but it leaves enough extra that you can serve some on the side for those who like more. I also preferred using fresh dill, it gave it a much deeper dill aroma, which goes so well with salmon. I almost wish I had added some lemon juice as well, and may try that next time, as well as trying to substitute half of the remaining mayo with nonfat, plain yogurt to lower the fat. My kids liked it as well. I made one 1.5 lb fillet with this sauce and another with a simpler butter/wine sauce, and this was their favorite of the two.
Wow. My boyfriend licked his plate. I cut the recipe in half and used 1/2 c. plain yogurt, 1/4 c. mayo. The only mustard that I had was hot and spicy, but it turned out great!
I got mixed reviews from my family. My hubby and daughter hated it but I liked it (not crazy for em' though but good enough). Okay, the reason why our overall rating was average is because my hubby it was way too much mayo/mustard and oozed out. He also did not care for the dill. I guess he is used to a firmer texture where the sauce stayed in placed when sliced and did not compare to the other favorite staples that consisted a white sauce base. I'm going to make some tweaks on this recipe and will update in the future.
Lacked flavor and thickness of glaze made salmon taste funny.
i thought it was good fish dip if i was eating fish sticks from a fast food resturant i wont eat that again
I used low fat greek yogurt instead of mayo. Has good flavor. I prefer my fish to be "lighter" instead of smothered with cream sauce but nonetheless it was tasty!
Great recipe! mild and yummy!
This was fabulous! I didn't alter it much except that I didn't have fresh basil so I used dried. I also halved the mayo/mustard mixture to use on a 1 lb. filet (and it was done in 30 minutes). This was so tasty and tender. Thank you.
One of the easiest and most delicious ways to prepare salmon. I did what others' suggested and cut the amounts of ingredients in half. It made plenty of sauce even like that. I will cut it to a third of what the recipe calls for.
Being an Alaskan with a freeezer full of salmon that needs to be eaten before we approach another fishing season, I'm always looking for new ways to cook salmon. This recipe was **OK** but in no way fantastic. I chose to use yogurt instead of mayo (why take a healthy fish and make it unhealthy???) but I found the mustard to be too strong and overwhelming. While my family ate the fish, none were turning cartwheels over it. I cut two fillets into normal (computer-mouse) sized portions and baked for 30 minutes with the skin on. It was fine but a little dry. I would have removed at 25-27 minutes. Hope this helps!
in general we liked it, but the prevailing opinion is that it needs some kick. we're thinking horseradish. this, btw, would be REALLY good on a salad (no dressing). i think i'd like to try it with sour cream too, instead of so much mayo.
We love this quick and easy recipe. The extra sauce is great on aspargus!
very good thanks!
Delicious! A little greasy but a very good taste with fish. Maybe not as much mayo next time.
Used a 1 lb. salmon fillet (previously frozen) and about 1/4 of the sauce spread on top. Rest of sauce was used for dipping. Salmon was moist and delicious.
I made this for a mother's day lunch, and it was a big hit! So easy to make too.
Very easy to make, but way too "mustardy". I used dijon mustard, substituted 1/3 of the mayo for plain yogurt and added pepper. On salmon it wasn't bad, but not on white fish which we tried with the leftover sauce (it made lots!). I'll be looking for another idea for fish.
This is a great recipe. I made it the first time as written (with less sauce) and have made it a couple of times changing things up a little. Today I made it with 1/2 cup mayo, 2 - 3 tbsp dijon mustard and added garlic and onions to the other herbs listed but no dill (didn't have any more). And it was delicious. Thanks for the recipe!
This is my favorite salmon recipe of all time. Don't change a thing. YUM!
Amazing! Sounds overpowering, but is a perfect compliment with the salmon! A "do-over" for sure!
I reduced amount of mayonnaise, preparing the mixture earlier in the day to give the herbs an opportunity to blend - also added dill directly into mayonnaise mixture. This recipe is very easy and quick to prepare, producing a tasty version of salmon. My fish was fully cooked within 20 minutes.
I made this for my boyfriend and I, we both loved it! I didn't use the exact measurments given, since I was only cooking for two, but it was very close. I served it with fresh asparagus sauteed w/garlic in olive oil and lemon juice, and pasta w/a creamy pesto sauce. The flavors complimented each other well. Will definately use this again.
Really good....I'm a new cook and this was very simple to make and very tasty.
If I were to describe this dish in one word it would be weird. Not gross but weird. I followed the directions percisely and could not bring myself to eat it untill I scraped off most of the toping. The mustard was a weird flavor with salmon and it had way to much seasoning. I am from Alaksa in the town with the best Salmon fishing in the world and have had salmon many diffrent ways but this is one way I will never eat it again.
Just made this as a last minute meal for myself so I scaled the recipe to 2 and it still came out to be way too much!! I put salt, pepper, and garlic powder on one side, then lightly sprayed some foil and placed the pieces seasoned side down and then topped it with the sauce and dill! I couldn't exactly close them after so I folded the edges of the foil up and placed them on a baking sheet for 40 minutes (I like mine dry) but still came out so juicy and flaked perfectly!! My boyfriend is an extremely picky eater and said he couldn't eat because he was going to the gym but said he'd have bite, finished the whole piece then had some of mine! I love the flavors of this but the sauce should be used sparingly, I thought about using the extra as a dipping sauce but it would be way too much, it would be good with lightly seasoned or blackened salmon though! Great easy recipe, I made the sauce in a measuring cup and used foil...barely any clean up!!
I made this recipe for a dinner party and everyone loved it! They said it was the best dinner I have ever made. The sauce really compliments the salmon. Even the people who don't really care for salmon loved it.
This is a good simple recipe. My husband and I both really like it. I have made it with fresh and dried herbs and both ways are good. Also Like to add fresh parmesan cheese to kick it up a knotch....YUMMY!
The topping completely hid the taste of the salmon and I only used half of it on the salmon. If I was to make this again, I wouldn't use yellow mustard (honey mustard would likely be better) and I would only make 1/4 of the amt.
The taste was good (used dijon). But it was so oily that it was hard to get past the greasy taste. I might use the sauce as a dipping sauce next time....not cooked, so that the mayo does not break up under the heat.
Not spiced enough for my taste. I switched mayo for yogurt.
My husband and I enjoyed this recipe. I used Fat Free Miracle Whip instead of mayonnaise because I don't like mayonnaise.
I thought this recipe sounded delicious cause dill goes great with seafood. i didn't have reg mustard so i used honey dijon it was great you were able to taste a little sweetness with the fish, my husband enjoyed it as well. Will make again:)
My boyfriend is NOT a fish eater, but this got him to eat salmon! The first time I substituted the full fat mayo (yuck!) with lite miracle whip because people had said a sweeter type of sause. I also tried fat free mayo, which was also excellent - either works, depending on your taste preferences. The cool dill flavor goes so well with the creamy sause and the hot salmon. Excellent recipe!
Very good, but I made half the sauce, using low fat mayo. The suggestions from the other reviewers used yogurt, but yogurt has way too many carbs if you're on a low carb diet. We loved it the way I made it.
I was looking for a new way to enjoy salmon and both my husband and I thought that this recipe was fantastic. It was also very simple and quick. It went great with asparagus and I used the leftover herbed mayo (which there was quite a bit) for sandwiches and in chicken salad.
To reduce calories, I used fat free mayo and only 1 cup and it still turned out really good. The sauce made a BUNCH, but it also cooked up some in the oven, so put on more sauce than you think you need. I saved the extra sauce to use on chicken.
This is one rich dish! I made the mistake of doubling the mayonnaise mixture because I used 3lbs. of salmon fillets; the amount of mayonnaise originally called for would have been sufficient because of its richness. Next time, as per other reviewers' suggestions, I would use half the amount of the spread, and I would also mix the dill right into the spread instead of sprinkling it on top. With this recipe, a little goes a long way; it is good, but it is filling. I didn't really care for this as a leftover dish, so next time I'll also only make what is necessary for one meal. Thank you sharing this recipe, my husband and I enjoyed it, and I will be using it again.
I loved this new way to have salmon! Obviously cut down on the mayo.
We really liked it. My husband at the whole thing with sauce, even though he "doesn't like mustard". I only made half the sauce and didnt use dill because we were out. I think if I made it again I would use a little less mustard. Very good though.
This was great. Make sure you season your fish first. The sauce makes a TON. I was only making 3 pieces of salmon so I should have cut the sauce in half. You would have enough sauce for 10 pieces of fish. I used 6 oz of greek yogurt for part of the mayo. I didn't have any basil or oregano so I just used Italian seasoning. Will be making again and again. I love the sauce so much I had it the next day on a turkey burger...wonderful!
My family loves this recipe. I have a 2 year old and a 7 year old who hate fish, and this is the only fish they will eat so far.
I made this for my sister, husband, and myself. Everyone loved it. didn't change a thing; it was a very easy and nice way to cook salmon.
I was a little sceptical of the ingredients in this recipe but thought I would give it a try and I am so glad I did! I also cut back on the sauce like most others. Very very tasty and quick! Now if that doesn't make for a perfect recipe nothing ever will!!
This was fantastic! I seasoned the salmon with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and some lemon. Followed the recipe...it does make a lot. Family raved about it, I will make again! (I used the leftover sauce on boneless chicken breasts a few nights later, yum!)
This was super easy to make and it turned out fantastic! The mayo/mustard mixture on top really gave the dish its flavour. We served it with boiled potatoes and carrots; YUM!
Too much sauce. Use less mustard.
Adjusted this according to some other people's ideas. Used plain yogurt (i used Greek yogurt). Also rubbed salmon with olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper before spreading the sauce on thick. My fiance and I LOVED it!
Delicious, delicious! I'll definitely be adding this to my regular recipes!
This was delicious and simply to prepare! I cut the sauce in half and I still had leftover creamy dill sauce! The only thing I did different than the recipe was I used 3/4 of a cup of smart beat (fake mayonnaise) and 1/4 a cup of real mayonnaise and I added extra dill because it just felt right :) Delicious and will definitely make again.
Apparently there's no middle ground when it comes to this recipe. Most good sandwiches contain both mayo and mustard with only a modest amount of mustard directly in contact with the meat. A ratio of less yellow and more white improves this dish as evidence by solutions presented in other reviews. That's what I did and it was a winner.
My fillet was 1/2 lb so I used 1 1/2 tbl mayo and 1/2 tbl dijon mustard. Also added a squeeze of fresh lemon juice to the mix and on top of the fish prior to spreading. Baked it for 13 mins, just until light pink. VERY GOOD.
This was great. The Salmon was very moist. I was afraid the mustard would be overpowering, but it was not. Used 1/2 lite mayo and 1/2 lite miracle whip. I had a whole salmon fillet and felt like I was frosting a cake. I still had a lot of the mix left over. Thank you for sharing. My family loved it!
WOW What a great recipe. I loved it just as is however I also love a bit of spice so I tried it again with 1 teaspoon of my favorite pepper sauce and the flavor just came alive. Rock On.
I used full fat Greek yogurt, dijon mustard, and dried herbs. Salmon stayed moist, but took longer than I'm used to cooking salmon because of the sauce insulation. I cook to 130 degree on thermometer.
Yummy and easy. I used mostly yogurt instead of mayo. I threw in a couple of tbsp of mayo just to make it a little sweeter/creamier. But it was good the way it was. I also used dijon mustard.
Very good! An enjoyable way to have salmon.
Super Delicious! You have to try this recipe! To make it healthy, I used non-fat plain yogurt instead of mayo. I also used dijon mustard instead of prepared. Just a sprinkling of salt and pepper on the salmon and that sums up the changes I made! The sauce is amazing! I ended up only preparing half of the sauce, as other reviewers suggested. It still makes plenty. This is definitely being added to my rotation. Thank you for this recipe!
Wonderful recipe. Wife is Alaskan native, she has lot's of recipes for salmon that are very good. I cook when she works late and this recipe was a smash hit for all. Made with wild rice.
This is crazy good. I also used yogurt for most of the mayo, and cut the sauce down by maybe 1/3. It was just enough to totally cover 3 salmon steaks, and it was wonderful. Best creamy dill I've had!
Overall, a good base recipe. I had a one LB fillet and used about half of what was called for and still had more than enough. I adjusted the amounts of each ingredient to my personal taste and added garlic powder.
mmmmm What a great way to prepare salmon. I'm not a huge fan of salmon, but I recognize its health value; therefore, I'm always searching for a way to prepare it so it doesn't taste like 'salmon'. This recipe definitely fits the bill!! The whole family loved it!
My first time making salmon! I didn't know you are suppose to leave the skin on the fillet, so I had cut it off. It still tasted great. I will make this again!
I'm a 33y/o bachelor, never cooked any sort of fish before. To be blunt, I'm a terrible cook and cooking fish is like wiring electricity in the house: it's easy, but could be dangerous if not done right. I made this recipe as directed and aced it the first time through. It was easy, delicious, and one that I'm cooking for the second time as I type this. Well done. Thank you...for not starving this carry-out king.
This is up in the running for one of my favorite salmon recipes. My husband could not stop talking about it. I followed the recipe exactly except for not using all of the mixture on top of the salmon. I used the extra to serve on the side for dipping as another had suggested. Super easy - the prep time is only about 5 minutes. A perfect meal!
soooooooo good! Ate it with streamed asparagus and wild rice! I used stone ground mustard, I liked the bite it gave the sauce. This is a keeper :)
WOW!!!! I was blown off at how well it tasted. This is my favourite way of baking salmon
This was really good. I'm not a big salmon person, but all of the kids and dh love it. I halved the recipe (like everyone else recommended)and had plenty for the 2 fairly large fillets. We had it with potato pancakes and broccoli and it was a great meal. It's a keeper for us :)
Sooooo good. A little over a year ago I wouldn't even eat Salmon. Now I love it and this recipe is one of the top ways I've had it.
The salmon was delicious although I do agree with the reviewer who suggested using only half the mustard/mayo mixture.
this recipe was alright i guess..i would not serve it to company though. the sauce was...thick and didn't smooth out over the fish well at all. it just kind of clumped on top and then fell to the side. way too yellow. not pleasing to the eye at all. next time i would put a much smaller amount on the fish. i only used about a spoonful per fillet this time, but next time i would use even less.
not bad...a little less sauce on the fish next time
This was fabulous! I used veganaise because that's all I had but I like mayo anyway. Here's the thing for me- if you have a cheap frozen salmon filet that you won't to dress up this recipe is PERFECT for that and my salmon tasted 100% better than ever before. If you have a lovely fresh salmon piece however, I still prefer olive oil, salt and pepper on a cedar plank on the grill because the natural salmon flavors aren't overwhelmed that way. That said, I am SO glad to find a way to doctor up a not so appetizing piece of fish.
WAY too much sauce... too much mustard, too. I had already cut the sauce recipe back a lot for 2 large salmon fillets but it was still a big waste of sauce. I ended up putting this on a bed of white rice so the sauce had somewhere else do go. I'll make this again but I'll cut back on both the mayo and mustard.
Ok this was so good, but I did change it a little but not cause I wanted to. Somehow I forgot to get mustard and thought I had some but I didnt. So I cut the mayo in half and use some plain yogurt for health, and used annie goddess dressing in place of mustard and a little lemon. I used fresh herbs and I think I used more than I was suppose to but I did it to taste. I will remake it the right way next time just to see, I hate when people make things on here and completely change everything than rate it. So maybe I will rerate it too, but it was sooo good.
Fantastic I could not believe how delicious this was the first time I made it. Several friends with whom I shared the recipe have also had great success.It has become Dad's Famous Salmon Recipe. Don't change a thing just follow the simple instructions.
This was an interesting and different dish. I halved the recipe as was suggested by other users. Even though I halfed the recipe there was still quite a bit left over, which was great as a dip for veggies! I also used half dijon, half plain mustard.
Excellent recipe - but the sauce could definitely be halved, and next time I'll try it with yogurt as others have suggested for a little lower cal/fat option. Great recipe, though, and I'm excited to try the spread recipe on chicken!
This was a great salmon recipe....moist, tasty, and good. I made about 3/4ths the recipe and still had too much sauce! I added a little sugar and some parmesan cheese. I will make this one again!
don't put to much topping on or it taste funny but when I took some off it was great!! I don't like fish but this was wonderful my family loved it
This was quick and easy and very good! I found the recipe made more sauce than I really needed but the flavor was great without masking the taste of the salmaon. I would definitely serve this proudly to guests!
Tried it with yogurt and little bit of mayo, but the mustard I used was too strong. Will definitely try again.
Very easy and tasty. I cut back on the mayo, 1/3 cup per filet is plenty. I also reduced cooking time by 5 minutes. Came out great.
All but my husband liked this though he dosen't like salmon or mustard so.... But the kids 9 and 8 LOVED it.
Excellent recipe. For those of you that added honey to the recipe, try vanilla yogurt instead of the plain. It is delightful. Thanks for the recipe.
This is the second time I have used this recipe and each time it has been for guests! I get rave reviews everytime I make it! The creamy dill sauce keeps the salmon lovely and moist! It is perfection!
It was alright taste wise, but it a little too thick and creamy for us, would take the mayo down a notch or two next time, and maybe crunch up some crackers on top for a better texture! My 2 yr. old ate salmon though, so it's staying in my recipe box.
Yes there is more topping than needed for the amount of fish so that needs to be cut back but the flavor is great as long as you don't slather too much on....great way to have salmon.
I made this recipe for my husband and myself. It was wonderful! My husband said it was definitely a do over!
Tried this recipe last night. I usually do not like salmon but this recipe was delicious. I did cut down on the mayo mixture and it was perfect. We have salmon in our freezer from Alaska and this recipe is a keeper.
Pretty good. It did make way too much sauce. I'll probably make it again sometime. I did like the flavors.
This is a great go to comfort food for me. It easily adjusts down for a single person and is so satisfying. I make this all the time, but with fresh herbs.
Very good recipe. Have made twice already and plan to use regularly.
This makes a ridiculous amount of sauce. I made only half the amount of sauce, used 4 salmon fillets, and was still able to completely cover all the fillets in the sauce, and still have about 1/3 to 1/2 cup of sauce left over. Also, the cook time is way too much. I only baked it for 20 minutes and it was still too much. The taste was alright. I might or might not make this again.
I absolutely loved this recipe. Will most definately make it again. I did cut sauce recipe in half and only had a little left over, I also grated lemon peel onto the salmon before spooning sauce on the filets and I thought this was a great addition, got a little citrus taste but not over powering.
this was good but there was way too much sauce. i used light mayo and used as much mayo as mustard. even then i could have reduced the sauce by half. someone suggested leaving the sauce on the side and this is a good idea ... you can control how much you use.
The sauce was great. I used fresh herbs I grew in the house.
My husband and I love salmon this is agreat recipes.
