Reviews for Lemon Grilled Salmon
"My family loved this recipe, but I only thought it was ok. Thus the four stars. Trust my fam ;-)"
"Delicious salmon! I made this exactly as written and loved it!"
"So good! We really liked this one! We cooked it on the grill in a disposable foil pan for easy clean up."
"I have used this since it first came out in the "Taste of Home" magazine many years ago. Wonderful flavor. I DO double the marinade ingredients, however, for more coverage as the fish marinates in the dish or bag. My children have greatly enjoyed the teriyaki flavor and the lemon slices provide a great presentation."
"My sister and her husband like to grill. This is one of their favorite grilling entrees. It is very easy to prepare."
"i made this recipe last night, i also let the salmon marinate for 3 hours in the fridge turning itoccasionnaly . Did cook it on BBQ on double non-stick alumiinium fold. i keep the temperature at 350`F and cook it for 20 minutes.it was just mouth watering, not dry at all for salmon."
"Love, love, love!!!"
"I have been searching for a great Salmon recipe....and this is definitely IT!!! The brown sugar adds just a hint of sweetness and my neighbors and family really loved this flavor! The dill is not overpowering, and adds a distinct flavor to the salmon. AWESOME RECIPE and easy to prepare!!!"
"First time truly making salmon and it was amazing. Let it marinade in the fridge for a few hours and then put it in foil(due to not having the skin on it) and on the grill.. The flavors were just outstanding.... Will be making this again soon"

"I had been trying many salmon recipes when I found this one. My family told me to stop looking...this one was a keeper!"
"We make this all the time exactly as recipe calls. Last time we made it, we tried it in the oven- not the same. I do not recommend the oven for this recipe (in the oven, the fish is much less firm and the flavors aren't nearly as strong in the oven either)"
"My family loves this!"
"This was delicious. I didn't have any salmon with me so I used Pollock and it was still fantastic. The flavor was such that I think it could also be used for chicken and other meats. This is definitely worth giving a try."
"Have made this recipe numerous times - it is a family favorite. My boys, 12 and 14 request it frequently. Easy to make & great flavor!! Definitely a keeper!"
"I make this recipe often. I marinate it overnight for best flavor. I served it to guests last weekend and they said it was the best salmon they've ever tasted!"
"best salmon recipe my family loves it this is my daughter's favorite dinner"
"This recipe was delicious! The salmon had great flavor- Will definitely be making this again soon!"
"My husband and I are always looking for new ways to prepare salmon, as we always have great salmon on hand living in the Pacific Northwest.I did marinate mine for 3 hours, to give more flavor to the salmon. I didnt feel that 1 hour of marinating made a real change in flavor.We baked ours in the over, uncovered at 375 for about 35 minutes, and it turns out perfect!"
"Absolutely delicious. Very easy too make (We broiled it). If you don't count the marinating time it was also very quick."
"I agree, this was wonderful!"
"This is by far the best salmon recipe I have ever had-you have to try this one!"
