This is the best recipe I have ever used. I have always over cooked my salmon but this recipe was not complicated at all! This time my salmon came out buttery, flaky and my family loved it. My grand kids Emily and Eric loved it too. Great!

I cook my salmon on the grill with Pam on a pan for grilling. I also spray the salmon with Pam and add spices, this is really good.

This video was so helpful, I didn't know to bake the salmon skin side up for 5 minutes and the skin would peel right off...it worked perfectly! My salmon turned out so delicious, I will always use this method to cook salmon :)
