I've made salmon this way a few times now, and it comes out perfect every time! I like using lemon-herb seasoning. My 8-yr-old used to loathe fish, but now he actually ASKS for it :) And I never remove the skin - that's the best part ;P

This is the best way I have every cooked salmon. I have made it this way about a dozen times now and it comes out perfect EVERY time. I always make my own asian glaze that I add after I flip the salmon. 9 year old son loves it so much he requests it for his birthday.

I have cooked this several times and now my daughter thinks I make the greatest salmon in the world. And the girl hates fish! We'll keep this recipe between us AllRecipes. Thanks.
