Easy and delicious! The lemon & dill showcase the salmon beautifully. The addition of zest provided the bump of tart flavor. I added a sprinkle of fresh ground black pepper, but otherwise didn't change a thing. I will be using this recipe again!

Quick and delicious! I used half the quantity of dried dill and because the salmon I was using had the skin on I pre-heated the sprayed foil and gave the the skin a rub with the butter mixture before placing it skin side down in the tray so it was nice and crispy.

Very nice and easy. This recipe screamed for Capers to me so I added them (about 2 tbsp.) and would say they added a lot to the dish. Will definitely make again.
