Read someone's review about frozen salmon and baking it on 450 for 15 min and broil for 3. Turned out perfect. Thank you. I struggled with broiling frozen fish before. For the first time it turned out great.

Made this for the wife last night. I used brummel and brown yogurt spread stuff instead of butter, and low sodium Kikkoman soy sauce. I tasted the butter/soy sauce combo (I TATSE EVERYTHING!) before applying it to the salmon, it really was delicious. No need to brush the sauce onto the salmon, it's not thick like BBQ sauce. You can just pour it on. It's gonna run off anyhow. I coated the fish with lemon pepper, maybe i should have just lightly sprinkled. The recipe doesn't mention any flipping, so being a man obsessed with computers, photography and not cooking, I naturally didn't flip it either. It began to get black on the top after about 5 minutesin the broiler. I told my wife, and she asked me when I flipped it. HAHAHA So i flipped it. The blackened portion was actually tasty, the lemon pepper was lemony, and i enjoyed the fish. However, it came out of the pan with all kinds of unattractive blackness on it, and it was on the greasy side. I'm gonna try it again, changing the following: Unsalted butter instead of brummel less lemon pepper A dash of olive oil added to the butter/soy mix before applying to fish

i made this in the oven, 400 degrees for 20 minutes, covered w/foil. excellent! very juicy and sweet! a big hit with some very fussy men.

Glorious! I used a filet of salmon instead of the steaks but it worked out very well. The melted butter and soy sauce form a crust over the top with the seasonings, and paired with the tender salmon it's just mouth-watering.

I added about a tablespoon of brown sugar that really added to the flavor yet it kept it very simple.

An incredibly easy, delicious meal. I don't like lemon pepper so I used Mrs Dash salt free garlic/herb seas mix. I baked it at 350 for 20 min & it was wonderful! Very quick & flavorful. Thanks for sharing!

This is so easy, yet so delicious. On the advise of others, I baked, covered, in oven until fish was done. Just as good heated up the next day. Thanks!

This was very good and really quick and easy to prepare. I prepared it exactly as shown. Next time I would make a couple changes: I would use a broiling pan rather than a baking sheet, I would baste and sprinkle one side, broil for 4 minutes, turn it over, baste and sprinkle the other side, broil for 4 more. This worked very well with my gas broiler - I will definitely make again.
