Reviews for Oven-Roasted Salmon
"I have a number of savory recipes for salmon that I prefer over this one. I used the caper/shallot/dill topping and it was good but I'm not sure I will do this one again. The directions for baking were correct, however, and the salmon was cooked but still moist."
"Love this salmon recipe. It's so easy and delicious. Simple, quality ingredients make the toppings superb!"
"This was so good and had such a beautiful presentation. I made the gremolata topping - so delicious! My daughter says it's a keeper, and I agree!"
"Super easy and very delicious!! This will become a staple when we need to add some fish to our weekly menu."
