The instruction says "when baking salmon, plan on 10 minutes for every inch of thickness". And then it goes on to say that we should bake it for 45 minutes, which means 45 minutes is for 4.5 inches. But the salmon in the video looks way less than 4.5 inch thick......what am I missing here?

I think she said "four to five" minutes, not forty-five. Cause 45 minutes makes no sense at all.

What is the shelf life of fresh salmon before you actually prepare it for cooking?
