    Tasted good, but felt like it was a little overcomplicated between all the herbs and the foil tent. Maybe its just me, but I find salmon flavorful on its own and would still prefer just salt pepper and a little olive oil.

    Needs salt and can benefit from a variety of herbs.

    Not great. Took quite a bit longer to cook than expected. Like salmon cooked open to heat much better. Forget the wrap-around foil.

    Used individually sliced salmon steaks from Costco, skin on, and wrapped four at a time together like the instructions direct. I laid it inside a 7x11 dish, and covered with foil. The result was so tender and flavorful! I've never cooked salmon other than grilling, and was nervous and reluctant to do so, for fear of a fishy flavor. However, this was so good!

    Very good! I didn’t have all the herbs/spices it called for, but the nice thing about baked salmon is you can improvise but it was very moist and I will use this recipe again (this time with all the correct ingredients!)

    Came out pretty lemony. Maybe try air fryer next tome instead of foil. May not really need any salt

    It was delicious. Cooked it in the convection oven. Needed more that time suggested. Put under broiler after cooking longer. Great recipe!

    Real easy to make and so much bang for the buck; lots of flavor that doesn't steal away from the salmon. Will enter my families meal rotation plan.

    So tasty and easy. Tender and not at all dried out. Flavorful. Easy to experiment with variety of herbs and spices. I served it with brown basmati jasmine rice. Kids and adults loved it.

    It was great! Took a few minutes longer for my salmon, and I added some of Chef Paul Prudhomme’s Magic Salmon Seasoning and it was gone in minutes to the potluck I brought it to. Added a few sliced white mushrooms for decoration too.

    This turned out amazing! The salmon melted like butter. I added sea salt and drizzled olive oil over the salmon once sprinkled with ingredients. I left out dill, not a fan and added thin slices of ginger. I placed my salmon in pyrex dish sprayed bottom with canola oil then covered with foil. Last 5 min I took off foil to crisp lemon and herbs a bit on top. Very good! I would make it again. Served it with risotto and roasted cauliflower.
