Baked Salmon

Crystal loves salmon.  I, on the other hand, have mixed feelings about it.  I think that it can be a little fishy sometimes, and I don’t care for that.  As I get a little older, however, I can’t help but be impressed by the health benefits of salmon.  So, I made it my mission to find a way to prepare salmon that I would like.  I bought a fresh fillet of Atlantic salmon and thought I would try baking it.  It actually turned out really good, and I realized the reason that I didn’t like salmon.  I had been buying frozen farmed salmon, and I just don’t care for frozen farmed salmon.  Now that I’ve figured out what to buy, I actually really enjoy salmon.  In fact, this recipe is a weekly staple at our house.  I strongly recommend that you buy fresh salmon fillets for this recipe.  I’m not sure how well it will work with frozen, but you could give it a try and let us know.
