Delicious!!!! I've love salmon, but hadn't tried basil on it before. I was skeptical but not only do I now love salmon even more, I love basil too! I made it this way and it was delicious of course. Then I tried a few other combos and was equally pleased. One of my variations was delicious but don't be afraid to play with the measurements. I don't measure so I'm giving an estimate. I wouldn't go TOO heavy on everything because you may wind up with too much flavor. I used 4 (6 ounce) fillets of salmon (no skin) and rubbed about half to one teaspoon of olive oil on each side. I poured a teaspoon of lemon juice on each side. (Sounds like a lot but isn't) Then I added the following items both to the bottom of my pyrex baking dish and to the top of the salmon after I put it in the dish: (all dried and same measurements for top and bottom) 1.5 teaspoon of basil, 1 teaspoon of oregano, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, 1.5 teaspoons parsley, 1 teaspoon minced garlic, 1/2 teaspoon dill weed, 1/2 teaspoon mint, 1/4 teaspoon of thyme. Cover with foil. Place in preheated 350 degree oven. Cook for 20 minutes. Take off foil and cook 5-10 more min. uncovered. You can add more salt and lemon juice after baking if u like.
