I use this recipe with a little twist. I mix the minced garlic/dill/lemon juice with soft butter. Then drop balls of the butter mixture with onions on the salmon & cook in foil in the oven or BarBQ. I always receive compliments on how moist & tasty the salmon turns out. Try it you'll love it!!

Okay. Don't really like poached fish. Salmon seems to lose its distinctive taste cooked this way. Tried it once. That was enough.

I made this recipe and the baked salmon II recipe at the same time. the baked salmon was great, full of flavor throughout the salmon. this one was great also but not as full of flavor. a little more bland but still was tasty. you really taste the good flavor of the salmon but with a nice taste on top. the other recipe was more infused in the whole flavor. probably cause the oil it calls for. this is lighter and i will probably make it again. thanx.

Very good we all loved it. I lined the foil with parchment instead of spraying with non stick spray. I also served it with a cold yogurt sauce consisting of plain yogurt, shallots, honey, fresh dill and lemon juice. Adding the scallions after the salmon was fully cooked also added a fresh taste and crunchy texture. Thanks!

This is the best salmon recipe I've ever tried. It is wonderful!! I only used 1 pound of salmon and cooked for the full 25 minutes, added a touch of olive oil, left out the green onions and added a touch of crushed red pepper for spice. I also cut a few slits in the top of the salmon so the flavors would soak through. This hit the nail on the head..turned out amazing.

I thought this was very good --and most importantly, easy. I don't understand why some users are calling it "bland." I like that it's rather mild (but still really tasty!). It doesn't overpower the taste of the salmon. I used dried dill, and squeezed the lemon juice over the fish, rather than topping it with slices, but only because I don't like an overly-lemony flavor and didn't want it to turn out too strong. Good recipe, and very easy!

This was very good. I didn't have the dill, so I substitued italian spices and I used lemon juice instead of the slices. It was perfectly cooked and very tasty. I will be making this again.

This was so easy. You just chop up some dill, green onions and garlic. Top with sliced lemons and bake in the oven. It was my first time making salmon and it couldn't have turned out better. It was so simple yet very flavorful. I paired this with a creamy dill sauce that included lemon juice, green onions and dill. I served this with Broccoli with Lemon Butter sauce.
