This is a wonderful way to cook salmon and it still retains it's true flavor. Too much oil for our liking so cut back and substituted crushed garlic for fennel. We like lots of garlic. Whatever, it is excellent and will be used often. Surprised it hasn t been reviewed before now.

Didn't use tarragon, fennel seeds or lemon juice and it still turned out juicy and delicious. Thanks!

I didn't have tarragon so I omitted it and instead added a little garlic. It was absolutely delicious except that I put to much salt on it. I would highly suggest putting a very small amount of salt on both sides if any.

This is really good, even cold. I did reduce the oil to 1/4 cup. Served with herb roasted potato wedges. Delicious.
