4 (4 ounce) fillets
1 1/4 cups
chopped fresh mint leaves
This is my family's favorite dish! It is always requested for company and other special occasions. It is easy and fast, and great served with Fresh Steamed Broccoli and Wild Rice!
This recipe was fairly good. I was expecting more depth to the flavor. I definitely enjoyed trying something new and this was a method of preparing salmon I had not tried before. The only changes I made was to add a bit more onion and garlic. I may or may not make this recipe again.
The sauce and herbs sound like a great combonation, but the cooking technique is a mystery. How do you put a long package of parchament wrapped salmon in a double boiler. Can you bake this on a cookie sheet?
I used tin foil instead of parchment paper and lemon juice instead of lemon, since that is all I had. I used my spagetti pot (since it doesn't get much used when I am off the carbs) and used it like a steamer. The salmon was very tender and moist. All the herbs I used were dried.
I thought it was very good, but next time I might consider adding some wine or something to the sauce, seems like it needs a little more flavor. I would say that I used more garlic and onion than was called for and just seemed a bit bland for my taste, but I would make this again
Very nice mint sauce. It's has a light, fresh taste that complements the salmon nicely. When baking the salmon, I just spray a layer of cooking spray on parchment paper, lay down the salmon, and added lemon slices and herbs on top. I cooked it on 325 degrees for about 35 minutes and it came out just perfect. I will be making this again!
This was wonderful! I used a hand blender right in the pan for the sauce and added a dab more garlic. I also used foil as an outer wrapping on the packets. The salmon was tender, moist, full of flavour and smelled incredible cooking. Looks sophisicated and impressive, but it was so easy to cook.
I only used this recipe for the sauce...
I added some white cooking wine and old bay garlic and herb seasoning and thought it turned out rather well. Delicate flavor that complimented the salmon.
Will make again.
Very nice flavor and I used talapia fillets instead of salmon. My one complaint was that after 25 min the butter wasn't even melted and I had the water on a low boil the entire time. So, popped it in the micro for 4 min on hi and it was done and flaky!!!
