I have cooked this several times and now my daughter thinks I make the greatest salmon in the world. And the girl hates fish! We'll keep this recipe between us AllRecipes. Thanks.

This instruction video was very helpful. I followed it earlier to make dinner, and... well simply it worked. The salmon came out good.

This is the best recipe I have ever used. I have always over cooked my salmon but this recipe was not complicated at all! This time my salmon came out buttery, flaky and my family loved it. My grand kids Emily and Eric loved it too. Great!
