"This is a wonderful (and easy) recipe I got from my Aunt. The flavors of lemon and dill really complement the fish. I like to use wild Alaskan salmon for this recipe, but any salmon will work. I usually don't measure, so these are all estimates. Play with the ingredients to suit your own tastes!"

Do add the dill to the lemon butter sauce and use fresh garlic if you have it. I put thin slices of lemon on the salmon for a nice look and some extra lemon flavor. It works well to wrap it all in foil to keep in all the sauce. 20 minutes was enough cooking time. Serve with rice to soak up the tasty sauce.
It was good, but I would definitelty mix the dill in with the butter sauce itself. Otherwise you just have a thick coating of dill on top of the salmon, which can be off-putting.
I needed a quick and easy recipe and this fit the bill. Used a few tablespoons of olive oil instead of butter, a few teaspoons of lime instead of lemon juice, and fresh pressed garlic instead of the powder. Healthy and delicious.
Very good recipe. This is one of the recipes that we use for salmon on a regular basis. Definitely follow the advice of another reviewer and add the dill to the butter sauce. It enhances the flavor and looks much better. Thanks for the post.
I agree with mixing the dill in with the butter/lemon juice. I found that the fish comes out much less dry if you wrap the dish in aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes. Also, you will want to use only half a tablespoon of dill or it's too overpowering.
My fiance & I liked this but thought that the lemon was a little strong. I would reduce to maybe 4 tbsp. Also, instead of the 1/4 cup butter I used 3 tbsp light margarine + 1 tbsp fat-free sour cream (would recommend this). I also went light on the dill because 1 tbsp seemed like a lot. I would make this recipe again.
A wonderful dish this truly is! I did cut back on the amount of butter and added in garlic, 2 T of fresh lemon juice, 1 garlic clove chopped up and also fresh chopped dill. I did not use a lot of dill after reading what other reviewers posted, just 1 tsp plus a little more (eyeball the amount) and I also mixed it with the lemon butter sauce before pouring it all over the salmon. The salmon was placed on a foil and after I poured the sauce over it I folded the aluminum tightly and baked 350 degrees for 25 minutes. The salmon came out sooooo moist, flaky, tasty, full of flavor, nothing overpowering. You can play with the amount of dill, lemon juice, etc., so the tastes suits you. I am glad I did cut back on the lemon juice and fresh dill. I also made a dill sauce (from this website) which I served alongside the salmon to dip in and I also made this with mushroom rice pilaf (from this website) with sauteed veggies. A very healthy and tasty dish. a winner and keeper in my recipe box.
Really worked well, though I used much less butter
