    We eat salmon at least once a week, usually done on the grill, or bake it in the oven. I'd make this with both dill and basil, and add a little onion powder and use lemon pepper. - 8/26/09

    My husband loved this and gave it a 5. But I couldn't taste the recipe ingredients over the fish taste. We thought next time we would brush the fish 6 hours before grilling so the taste can soak in. Also could use more spices. - 4/20/09

    Picked up some salmon tonight and made it on the grill. I usually make salmon using a Southern Living recipe with pecans, honey and breadcrumbs. Used dill rather than basil with this recipe and it came out beautifully! I am sure the calories and fat content were less as well. Will make it again. - 8/11/09
