When I’m starving after work, I want a fast meal with no-fail technique. Roasted salmon is uber-tender and has a delicate sweetness. It’s also an easy wowza for company. —Jeanne Ambrose, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

"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."
