That looks so delicious, I will definitely do this recipe next time I have salmon, we just did it a few days age with lime and butter, I agree salmon recipes should be simple!

I baked the salmon in a foil tent. It was delicious! Thank you. I usually combine honey, melted butter, and dijon mustard and brush it on the salmon. Oh, with a squirt of fresh lemon too. That’s also easy and delicious.

I made this for a special date (in) with my guy and it was very yummy! I added some finely chopped garlic and it was super. Thanks you!

This was amazing! And so simple. I covered the salmon with foil. Didn’t have parsley, but did not miss it.
