    I use this recipe with a little twist. I mix the minced garlic/dill/lemon juice with soft butter. Then drop balls of the butter mixture with onions on the salmon & cook in foil in the oven or BarBQ. I always receive compliments on how moist & tasty the salmon turns out. Try it you'll love it!!  -  19 Feb 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made this recipe and the baked salmon II recipe at the same time. the baked salmon was great, full of flavor throughout the salmon. this one was great also but not as full of flavor. a little more bland but still was tasty. you really taste the good flavor of the salmon but with a nice taste on top. the other recipe was more infused in the whole flavor. probably cause the oil it calls for. this is lighter and i will probably make it again. thanx.  -  23 Jul 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very good we all loved it. I lined the foil with parchment instead of spraying with non stick spray. I also served it with a cold yogurt sauce consisting of plain yogurt, shallots, honey, fresh dill and lemon juice. Adding the scallions after the salmon was fully cooked also added a fresh taste and crunchy texture. Thanks!  -  13 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
