MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 19, 2015

"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."
