This was excellent. My whole family raved. I usually don't follow a recipe to the T, but I did with this one because I wanted to make sure I had the base flavors right. The one thing I would do is salt and pepper the fish after you spread the mixture on it (especially if you aren't using the Parmesan Cheese, which is pretty salty) I put the salt and pepper into the mixture and it just wasn't salty enough for me.
This was SO easy and SO good! I forgot the onions and paprika but it was awesome without them. I cooked this with Spinach Lemon Rice and the meal was perfect - both dishes were easy to prepare and elegant. I had the leftovers for lunch the next day lightly heated in the microwave and it was just as good! Thanks for sharing your recipe!
Looking for yet another salmon recipe (Don't care for salmon) because the wife insists that we need the Omega Oils, less red meat, blah,blah,blah. And then I came upon this one. Sour cream, mayo, cheese, dill, what's not to like? I bathed my fillet in lemon juice while I mixed up the rest of the stuff. Couldn't have been easier. Before spreading on the sauce I massaged in some Salmon rub we bought from our trip to Alaska. Didn't use the cheddar but DID use the Parmesan. Excellent. I will now have my omega 3's on a regular basis!!
I usually grill my salmon, but this is a wonderfully flavored way to cook salmon in the oven. The topping is great; keeps the salmon nice and moist.
I do not personally eat salmon but I made this for dinner guests and my husband and they all agreed that it was very good. Living in Alaska we have more than our share of fresh salmon (red, pink, silver, king) Tonight I used Pink as it was the freshest thing my husband had caught (the night before) The flesh fillets took about 12 mins to cook and came out nice a flakey.. Thanks for the great versatile recipe. I bet you could even use this on chicken breast and it would taste good.. :)
DH says,"Very Good dinner, Baby! I served with Fresh Herb Lemon Butter Egg Noodles and a SunRay Garden Greens Salad. This could be a very versatile recipe, I am going to experiment with other kinds of fish and substitute different herbs ,spices, and cheeses to the mayo/sour cream base sauce. I am not usually to partial to the strong flavors of salmon, but loved it in this dish. -KK
