    I was only able to find really large salmon filets but it still turned out really well!

    My mother says it tastes like it should be in a fancy restaurant. I made it with lemon garlic asparagus. These two recipes will definitely be used in the future.

    This recipe received a thumbs up from the whole family. While I chose to dd a spring of fresh rosemary to each fillet, I could tell the recipe would be just as delicious without the extra herb.

    it was surprisingly good. i didn't even screw it up, and I can barely make cereal.

    we did it in an air fryer, which is more like baking than frying, and it turned out fine. a little dry, but I cooked it a tad too long. Good otherwise.

    Easy! Delicious! It would have been a fifty dollar meal at a restaurant but only cost me fifteen! Cooking time was double, though, because I used one large cut rather than fillets, but try it tonight!

    Great taste and texture

    Mine took about 20-25 minutes to bake. Everyone loved it and no one complained. The fish texture turned out flaky and perfect but the flavor wasn't quite what I was expecting. I ended up adding some Old Bay to my piece. I'll definitely make it again though. It was super easy to prep and bake.

    This recipe really allows the flavor of the salmon to shine through and is so simple. I have always been timid about cooking fish and this turns out perfect each time I make it.
