    My passion is to master the art of cooking sea food. I read about sea life and try to develop recipes worthy of the richness of inhabitants of the seas. This particular recipe is a supermarket "freebie" from the seafood department, generously provided by Heritage Salmon. Serve with new, baby red potatoes, asparagus spears and a salad of mixed greens.

      Absolutely delicious! Didn't have fresh dill so used the "tube" variety and subbed some red onion for the shallots but was truly wonderful. Can't wait to mix the leftovers with some cream cheese for my bagel tommorrow.

      What a HIT! I have made this several times and it is always the hit of the party. The salmon comes out moist. I usually use a full salmon filet which I purchase at Costco. I have cooked it by shortening the fillet (cut it off) and by folding it under, both ways seem to work. We cook it for 20 min, then test it.
