OMG - this was awesome! I used Costco frozen salmon and defrosted it (5 min on defrost in the microwave) in the marinade, then sealed it all in foil for 35 minutes at 375. It flaked but didn't look done so I microwaved on high one more minute. Best salmon I ever had. As good as the roadside salmon in Alaska.
We've made this three times now, all with excellent results! The first time it was a trial run for the family, who loved it. I halved the oil as was suggested in some reviews and baked it in a pyrex dish. The second time I marinated each fillet in a separate foil pouch - using all of the oil called for - and tossed it on the grill in the packets for a group of friends. Even though they weren't all fish lovers, nothing was left on their plates and they raved about the salmon. The third time was for family and apart from using thyme and dried cilantro in place of basil and parsley, I made it identical to the second. Everyone loved it! It comes out flavorful, is easy to prepare (our kids help) and the leftovers (which you only have when you purposely prepare too much) are terrific flaked on salad or eaten cold straight from the fridge. This is going into our once a month rotation!
This is my preferred salmon recipe. It's so tasty! We leave out the salt and it's perfect!
I loved this. Its easy and tastes like it came from a restaurant. Thank you for sharing.
What a great, simple recipe!
I used Cilantro since I had it on hand. This will be a recipe I will return to often. We had been eating so much copper river salmon this past summer that I needed to mix things up with a new recipe.
What a great, easy recipe! I didn't have fresh parsley on hand, so I used a little pesto and thyme instead, and it came out great. Very moist and delicious!
I love this recipe. I make it about once a week for myself and my boyfriend. The flavors go together so great. Like another person said down there, that the lemon and garlic are balanced very well. Plus I have most of the ingredients on hand. Thanks for posting. I think I'm in love with this fish! Haha
This is an amazing recipe. It is surprisingly simple to make, but tastes like a professional made it. I cannot encourage enough for everyone to use the freshest salmon possible on this. We often will by fresh fillets at the grocery store and bring it home to be made right away.
Wow! First time cooking it. Super Easy! Very flavorful. I marinated for 45 minutes. I kept the salmon in the glass dish and just covered it with foil. Much easier than wrapping each piece. I used Lime instead of lemon. I will always cook this recipe when it's salmon time. Everyone at the table loved it and wanted more. $7.00 worth of salmon feed 3 people and tasted like a $20 plate at a fine restaurant. It turned out flaky and perfect!
OK, FIRST of all I am far from a beginner as my family is from Newfoundland and we grew up on Salmon. That being said, this is the BEST Salmon recipe I've ever eaten. I'm also a personal chef, so again kudo's for a recipe that is beginner simple, and yet elegant enough to present as a professional dish. The salmon is moist, bursting with flavor, and the whole house smells like a fine restaurant. A Dish.
