Don't be afraid to bake salmon in parchment. It's a great method for keeping your expensive fish from drying out if it's a minute or two too long in the oven. The hardest thing to do is to judge when it's done, due to the variations in size of filets. Mine were a little more than 1 inch thick in the largest part, and alas, 20 minutes was a tad too long. They were still edible, and we enjoyed the combination of flavors. Thanks for the idea!
Wow, simple and delicious.
made this last night- delicous- I added more spices >>dill and lemon pepper -- I think 15 min would of been enough time to bake or lower the oven temp to 375.
Easy and great for salmon lovers. I'm still learning how to not parchment bake fish too long.
I used Dill instead of basil. You could exchange so many herbs in this dish - dill, basil, parsley.
Wow! Just when I was despairing that my salmon filet would spoil in the fridge, or that the luscious fresh basil I brought back from my Mom's lat weekend would get thrown away (as usual) because I kept it too long, I stumbled upon this amazing recipe.
The only modifications I made were length of cooking time (20 minutes, based on other reviews), no pepper (allergy), and lemon zest instead of lemon juice (allergy). Oh yeah, and I sprinkled a tiny bit of garlic powder on it. Freshly minced garlic would probably be even better.
So Good! We loved it, and I eat lots of salmon. It has such a good flavor, I also added sliced lemon to the table. I think next time I make it, I'll add a little garlic.
