Mar 29, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

For such a basic recipe I can't believe how good it was. We rarely get to eat salmon, but tonight my family ate every piece and have put it on the make more often list.

I made it exactly as recipe said and I was worried the cook time would be too short. But it was perfect.

Thanks Alton !!!!!!"
