Something is fishyJune 10, 2013 By None
Followed instructions. Used dill, parsley, salt and pepper. At 45 minutes the internal temp was only 113 F. Returned to oven for 5 min. Temperature increased by 5 degrees. Repeated the same and got the same result. Increased temperature from 200 degrees to 300. Returned fish to oven for 5 minute increments for 3 times then the last time for 7 minutes. Reached an internal temperature 144, one degree short of what it should have been. The fish tasted good. Not too dry but not super juicy. Took a total of one hour and 17 minutes. I would like to hear from the author as to what I might have done wrong. The oven is new and runs close to perfect.

I added a bed of zucchini and carrots cut on a mandoline and tossed with very little olive oil on the bottom of a glass baking dish and rested the salmon on top. You could do this with any thinly cut fresh or defrosted frozen veg for one pot clean-up.

hands down the only way I'll cook salmon ever again. I was a tad worried the fish didn't look cooked - don't be fooled. Awesome.

Loved it!May 27, 2011 By None
I'm not much of a cook, so this recipe was very easy, even for me. :-) I seasoned it with garlic salt, fresh ground pepper, and seasoning salt. I baked it at 200 for 50 minutes. I, too, was skeptical about the low heat, but it turned out delicious! This is my new favorite method of cooking salmon!

Best Salmon Ever!May 02, 2011 By None
This was the best salmon I've ever cooked! My husband and son loved it as well. I love that the prep was so easy. I admit, I opted for using a glass 9 X 12 baking dish, but I just made sure there was space between each piece of fish. (My fish pieces were already cut when I purchased them) I used both thyme and dill, as well as a good quality sea salt and some pepper. Delicious! What I love most about this recipe is that the low heat method gives some leeway. I set my timer for 45 minutes, but it went off as supper was being delayed. I kept it in the oven (at the 200 degree temp) for an additional 10 minutes, then decided I should at least turn the oven off. I wasn't able to serve dinner for another 15 minutes and it was still perfect! So moist and tender and very evenly cooked. Not a bit dry!! Thank you so much for sharing the recipe. I plan to use this method from now on.

Best Salmon receipe everApril 01, 2011 By None
I made this Salmon to take to a neighborhood get together. It was a huge hit. Everyone who tried it loved it and so others decided to have some too. The fish was so moist. The 200 degree temp must be a big part of the secret. It was delicious. I used basil and basil olive oil. In the summer I always grow lemon basil and I can't wait to try it this year. I plan to make it every Friday during Lent.

Your entire family will love it.March 18, 2011 By None
Got a similiar recipe from a friend who is a Doctor. I never imagined fish wouldn't taste ""fishy""..When I put olive oil it tastes like it was made with butter. Yes butter! Nice, healthy and simple. Best of all, I use herbs from my backyard. As a side dish I make it with couscous or something grainy.

So easy and moist, why do salmon any other way?December 06, 2010 By None
This recipe completely changes the texture of the salmon, leaving it so moist and delicious. You have to watch carefully because at a quick glance, it did not really look ""cooked"" but when I removed it from the oven, it flaked easily. I used salt, lemon pepper, and a hefty sprinkling of chopped fresh dill. I made a tartar sauce with finely chopped red onion, 2 tsp capers, 1 T chopped fresh dill, 1/2C zero fat yogurt, 1/4c low fat mayo and freshly squeezed lemon juice. I'll have tartar sauce left for another time but on this salmon it was delicious. Can't get over the moist texture of the fish, it was wonderful.

Great recipeMay 17, 2010 By None
I would definitely make this again! I found this recipe wonderful. I added to it some few ingredients of mine to bring more SPARK to it: white wine, cilantro and shallots. Serve with a fresh salad of lettuce, beets and goat cheese with roasted nuts.... yummy yummy!!

Perfect - the salmon was so succulent and tasty the kids finished their dinner in the shortest time! I was skeptical of the recommended temperature initially, but it turned out much better than cooking at higher temperature. Thanks for the recipe!

Absolutely delicious. I love salmon, but only if it's cooked correctly (not overdone and/or dry). I've always found myself fiddling with the temperature and time to get it just right. It turned out perfectly this time.

Excellent DishOctober 20, 2009 By None
This was delicious! It was the easiest way to make salmon. I even added some crushed red pepper to add some spice. I highly recommend this

Perfection!September 20, 2009 By None
This is the easiest recipe ever! It is fail-proof and I have made it using salmon and catfish. We used to grill and spend forever cleaning the fish off the grill and the grilling pan made especially for grilling fish (we tried several). We were sick of the clean-up, so I when I stumbled across this recipe, I had to try it. Now, it's the only way I cook fish, and the whole family loves it. Couldn't be easier or more delicious. Thank you so much for sharing it!

Best Ever!April 17, 2009 By tinakomi
This is the best way to bake salmon I've ever tasted! I tried it just because I'm on a low carb way of eating, but this has become a staple for myself and for guests, always getting rave reviews! And the lemon thyme is the best. Thank you Laura!

Fantastic Fish!February 18, 2008 By basiahope
This has a 5 star rating from the whole family. I cut my salmon (large piece) into three, to fit on 3 small oven-proof platters. I had no fresh herbs (winter) so used dried, with kosher salt and pepper. The salmon baked for more time than the recipe called for (a good hour). It came out totally moist and tender and perfectly seasoned. Everyone had seconds. This is now my cooking method of choice.
