I was so excited to try this based on all the great reviews, but I'm really sorry to say I absolutely hated it. :s Salmon is such a flavoursome fish and this preparation completely overpowered it. When I cook fish I want to taste the fish, not a myriad of jarred accompaniments. :s It made an otherwise light and delicious supper heavy and stodgy. Furthermore the recipe as it stands overcooks the salmon. Salmon should be cooked just until the center is done, or if fresh, it should be slightly undercooked. Would not make again. Sorry. :(
We enjoyed this different method of making salmon. I really felt it was a good mix of flavors. We did seem to have a lot of sauce for the amount of fish we had, next time I might cut it back a tad. But it sure was yummy.
Loved this! I didn't have any dill so I used a little bit of chopped fresh cilantro instead. I did add the cheese on top but it really didn't need it. If I add it next time I'll just bake it until it's gooey instead of broiling it into a crust. My husband couldn't stop raving about it all through dinner. Baked and served it on a bed of spinach moistened with a little bit of chicken broth and seasoned with salt, pepper, and onion powder. The spinach really complemented the fish and the fillets were perfectly cooked.
Very easy, simple and moist. I used fresh salmon (w/ skin) and fresh dill (2 tsps). I baked it only 15 minutes - as for the cheese - I only sprinkled the parmesan - it was good, but the cheese is not really necessary because the sour cream mixture is nice and light with subtle but refreshing touch of dill. The moisture was amazing, easy to cut and the skin just slid off. Thank you for a easy and good recipe.
I was a bit skeptical about this one, thinking that the delicate flavour of the salmon would be overpowered. Boy was I wrong!!! This was excellent. I did not use the cheddar at the end and I used about 1 1/2 Tbsp fresh dill as opposed to the dried and dijon mustard instead of regular yellow. Wow - I can't wait to make this again. Thanks Paja!
I too don't like fish period but with the omegas in salmon it's a good thing to give the family. I really enjoy this recipe and even ate seconds on the salmon.
Wow--I make this over and over again and love it every time. Plus if I'm missing something (like sour cream) it seems to come out just fine anyway. BTW, I've never added the cheddar, based on other reviews, and I usually use Honey Dijon Mustard, because that's what I have on hand.
How to destroy two lbs. of fresh salmon fillet - follow this recipe. The salmon turned out over-moist (nearly mushy) and the taste was over-bearing. Horrible.
I absolutely LOVE this recipe! Anyone who does not care for fish will now like it once they use this recipe. I like to put it out on the grill, which gives it a smokey flavor.
This is a great easy way to make salmon! I'll make this again! :)
