Baked Salmon with Herbs

The fish dishes Melissa Merrill relies on are all family-approved. "They love this salmon...and I like that it's so good for us!" she notes from Hatteras, North Carolina. "I grow my own herbs and love using them in recipes like this one."

    I've been trying to incorporate more salmon into our diet over the past year. So I have tried a number of recipes. I typically go for the sweet (i.e. Maple) salmon. This was completely different and absolutely delicious. I also used dry bread crumbs, the flavor of the coating was great. To answer question asked. It did take the entire cooking time for us, but we like our salmon cooked pretty well.

    Made this for my husband, he said it wasn't very good not a picky person. Will not make again.

    This was very tasty and our dinner guests loved it too and asked for the recipe. I didn't have fresh bread crumbs, so used dry Italian seasoned crumbs. It was perfectly done in 25 minutes for a King salmon filet about 1" thick at the thickest part.

    Just a question. Are you sure you cook this for 35-40 minutes? It seems a long time to cook salmon.
