"I made this because my sister was in town. I followed the recipe and used the chicken broth which I have never done before, it worked great, very tender and juicy. I added just a pinch of garlic because I pretty much love garlic on anything. I might add a few more of my favorite spices next time to give it more flavor, but all in all very tasty! I paired it with steamed broccoli and cauliflower and a Caesar Salad."
"I cooked my super thick fillets for 23 minutes and enjoyed two of the most moist, melt-in-your mouth pieces of salmon I've ever prepared (or eaten!) in my life. Just keep an eye on your oven to prevent over-cooking. I can't believe how delish they turned out! Will definitely be making this recipe again very soon :)"
"20-25 Min. of cooking time is WAY too much. This will result in overdone salmon. I suggest you cook your salmon 4-6 mins. per 1/2 inch thickness. About 8 -10 mins. should be enough for most fillets."
"I cooked it at 400F for 20 min and it was really overcooked."
"Quick, easy & delicious!"
