There’s no reason to shy away from cooking fish at home with a recipe as effortless as this one. Besides basil, try using dill, fennel or coriander in the herby sauce.—Crystal Jo Bruns, Iliff, Colorado
This is a terrific way to fix salmon...and it's so easy to do. The marinade mellows the fish flavor, and the dill sauce is a wonderful complement. I once served this recipe to 12 people from the Pacific Northwest who declared it was the best salmon they'd ever eaten!

It's easy to stir together this thick sauce to dress up broiled salmon steaks. The fish seems special but is really no fuss to prepare. Serve with crisp deli coleslaw and store-bought lemon cake for dessert...or try a Caesar salad and frozen key lime pie.
"I used this recipe often when I cooked for the 'Meals on Wheels' program in our hometown," writes Helen Sandsbraaten of Naicam, Saskatchewan. "The salmon is mildly seasoned with lemon and tarragon, and it's quick to make."
The moist salmon steaks and simple sauce are cooked in the same skillet for each prep and cleanup. "Friends have found this dinner to be elegant and delicious," says Valerie Hutson of Byron, Minnesota.
Grilling salmon in foil is an easy technique I use with foods that cook quickly, like fish, shrimp, bite-sized meats and fresh veggies. The options are endless—and the cleanup is easy. —A.J. Weinhold, McArthur, California
