I did not have lemon pepper, so I used fresh ground black pepper in its place. I also used a bunch of fresh snipped dill (not sure how much that measured out to be). We really enjoyed this and will be making again in the near future. Thanks for sharing!

I'm from Maryland and I LOVE Old Bay! I usually make a paste of 2 tbsp. soft butter, juice from 1/4 of a lemon, 2-3 teaspoons dried sweet basil and about a 1/4 tsp ro more of Old Bay seasoning on my salmon (which my family and I LOVE) but since I developed high colesterol and GERD I decided to cut out some of the spice that irratates my GERD and some of the fat that adds to my cholesterol. I placed the salmon on a large sheet of aluminum foil, then added a handful of water (in place of butter) sprinkled just a pinch of lemon pepper (in place of my normal lemon juice and Old Bay) and dried dill weed (in place of basil), I sealed the foil tight and baked it at 375 degrees for 20 minutes. I baked some organic baby carrots for about 10 minutes then added yellow squash and about 4-6 ounces water in the bottom of the pan and covered with foil. I usually toss the veggies in equal parts olive oil and butter, season with salt and pepper and bake until my desired tenderness is reached. After removing from oven, I toss the roasted veggies (baby carrots, sweet potatoes and yellow squash) with grated parmesan cheese. But... to my surprise, the lightly seasoned fish was tender and flaky and the plain veggies actually had nice natural flavors, it was all very good.

Very easy and very yummy! It was an easy recipe. I wrapped mine in foil as well and did not melt the butter in advance. We had a thin slab of salmon from Costoc and it only took 10 minutes to cook. This tastes like gourmet salmon! Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Very good! I had all the ingredients on hand. I wasn't sure if the recipe called for fresh or dried dill. I assumed it called for dried...so I put 3 tbps of fresh dill. It was yummy! This is a quick and easy way to make elegant salmon. Thank you for posting.

I dressed this up a bit I used tuna fillets with some olive oil, onion powder, garlic powder, and celery salt. Then on to the gas barbeque on tin foil.

This was excellent. I thought that the dill might be overwhelming, but it was not. I doubled the amount of marinade (for 5 servings of salmon), then dipped the fillets in it. DH grilled it outside. Yummy. I would not have minded having more sauce to drizzle over the salmon at the table.

I had a 300 gram salmon fillet, used half of the butter and wrapped in foil and baked in oven for approx 20 minutes, great flavours and will definitely make again.

Needed to get dinner ready quick, so I sprinkled all the ingredients on top of the salmon fillet, wrapped it in foil, then grilled. Wonderful recipe. My grilling time was more than 5 minutes -- more like 15. Thanks!
