READER'S COMMENT:
"I have never liked salmon... until now! I used sustainable wild-caught Alaskan Sockeye Salmon. Instead of grilling, I put the salmon in foil and baked at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes. I also did not have "fresh" basil, so I used...

This is delicious and elegant

Made this tonight - I got a bunch of fresh basil in my farm shares and some native tomato - so I went and bought 2 pieces of Wild King salmon (very expensive, yikes!) but I wanted to make a nice meal for my husband. I thought I'd have some trouble grilling on the foil and then getting if off but had no problem at all. I cooked it like 14 minutes as the pieces were fairly thick and I don't like my fish raw-ish, man, they came out beautiful! I served them w/ lemon wedge, fresh avocado and some thin, salted cucumbers (also in the farm share!) in sour cream. Served it with a nice chardonnay - I will make this again! I may not spring for the super expensive salmon but it was worth every penny. My husband absolutely LOVED it.

Most often repeated Eating Well recipe!

I have made this dish going on three times now since I first made it a month ago. It is just perfect! So easy, fresh and healthy! I highly recommend splurging and getting a good, thick cut of salmon fresh from the seafood counter for this (none of those freezer-packed filets) if you can afford it.

easy, few ingredients, fresh, delicious, healthy

Moist, Tender and Gorgeous

I had fresh home grown tomatoes and basil. I shopped for fresh (not frozen) WILD salmon. I got a long fillet and followed the tip to remove a few minor bones. Mine looked as good as the photo and tasted even better. I served it to company and they loved it. We also had fresh green beans, corn on the cob, crusty fresh sourdough bread and a green salad.

Easy, Easy, Easy and fast!
