I used this recipe for the first time I've ever cooked or ate salmon. I loved it. Salmon doesn't have a real fishy taste. I added a little more butter during cooking and a little lemon pepper on top of the fillets which I felt made it even more tasty. Very simple easy recipe that anyone can do.

Easy and very delicious! I added sliced jalapeños on top. I also left the skin on, which was no problem.
