In this recipe, the baked salmon will turn out juicy and the blend of spices used will enhance the flavor, taking it to another level.

    I like salmon, it tastes good and has a pleasant texture on the tongue. I will try your recipe. Thank you

  5. This recipe came into my life at such a perfect time! I am very low in B12; I need to get monthly injections for it, and I need to try and incorporate it into my diet. My partner doesn’t like seafood so he has no idea how to cook it, but he’s going to try and make it for me, we just need to figure out HOW to make it! Apparently salmon has a pretty good amount of B12 in it, so I’ll have to bookmark this recipe for future reference πŸ˜‹

  6. Oh gosh, this has made me so hungry it sounds great. I love Salmon, so I will try baking it with some potatoes wedges soon.

    Won’t the salmon dry out if you have to wait until the wedges are done?
