salmon fillets or steaks

dried dill weed
salmon and dill...outstanding...I like garlic, but onion is good too. ONLY cook til opaque...400 for 25 minutes is way long oftimes....use two forks to pull apart at 10 minutes, and likely it is opaque already...if not add 1-2 minutes as needed. overcooked fish are dry and tasteless. needs to be cooked very carefully. The thicker, the longer...tail pieces of salmon are best tasting and cook quicker. Try sour cream/mayo half and half plus fresh dill as a sauce, yummm...
Not bad-a little dry though, recommend using half the spices indicated in recipe and put tinfoil over the top of the salmon to keep in moisture.
I made this with fresh dill (about a ¼ cup or more) and fresh minced sweet onion (Vidalia, ¼ cup), and a lot of lemon, sautéed the butter, dill, onion, lemon quickly first then poured over salmon, served it with a cool cucumber salad and lemon dill rice, everyone was amazed
Delicious! Definitely a restaurant quality meal. I did substitute mayo for the butter. (A tip from another salmon recipe) I also marinaded the salmon in lemon juice for 20 minutes beforehand to cut the strong "fishy" taste. (A tip I learned about today... we found it worked!)
I am going to use this recipe again next week. Thanks!
I didn't measure anything and used lemmon pepper. First I sprinkled salt on both sides of the filet, then covered the top evenly with onion powder, dill, and lemon pepper. It turned out fabulous. The flavors of the seasonings are mild enough to really let the taste of the salmon through. I don't know if the butter did anything for the fish though. This tasted wonderful, but it might be because I was using fresh king salmon from Alaska that a fisherman friend of ours brought back for us.
I love this recipe- I season the salmon with salt and pepper, add some fresh dill (or dried), squirt one lemon juice on it, put the salmon in a foil packet with chopped up onion, a dab of butter, drizzle of olive oil, and the quartered lemon I used for juice. Delicious- great with green peas cooked with olive oil, onion, and garlic and baked sweet potato cubes...
Super recipe. I tried fresh dill the first time but it didn't have much flavor so I made it again and the dried dill was MUCH better. I would make this recipe again. it was great!
Really quick and easy! And DELICIOUS! LOW FAT option I used was to eliminate the butter and just spray with cooking spray, it still tasted wonderful! Thanks again for a great recipe!
