“Fresh salmon needs very little preparation. These salmon fillets are cooked in good, sweet butter and minced garlic, and then sprinkled with a little lemon juice. If you'd like a little more kick and a fancy presentation, caramelize onions and serve them atop the cooked salmon.” - by Christine

"My husband loved it. I've been looking for seafood recipes. I cooked it at 325 deg for about 30 minutes - I had a pound-and-a half of the fillet - I thoroughly sprinkled both sides with lemon pepper..." See more and brushed about a teaspoon of melted unsalted butter. I wrapped the pan with foil and sprayed non-stick oil before placing the salmon. I baked covered with foil for 10 minutes, then removed the foil cover for the rest of the cooking time or until the fish is well done. I forgot the lemon juice right before serving with brown rice but it didn't make a difference... my husband loved it!!"
"This is very good and similar to another way I like to cook salmon. The only thing I added was that I sprinkled a little dill on the fillet. Very good!

It had to cook a little longer than I thought, and the scale side made quite a mess in the pan and started to burn just a little. The meal itself though was wonderful. When I usually make this I bake in the oven on about 325. I have to say the oven is easier and not as messy, but I liked the extra little crunch (for lack of a better word) that the top of the fillet had from cooking on the stove top."
