YUM! We used fresh rosemary and a dry white wine. I think I would try using the marsala next time. This was amazingly fast and easy to make on a weeknight. Thanks!

every time i have made this, it has been wonderful! and like the other reviews say, it's very hard to mess up and requires very little measuring. i usually make it in the oven, and the foil holds in the juices perfectly. so tasty with some asparagus risotto or some easy wild rice. i would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a quick, fresh, and easy salmon recipe. yum!

I make this when I am short on time or just craving salmon. My boyfriend loves it! I usually skip the rosemary and I put i on my George Foreman grill.
