I loved this recipe because it was quick and easy. However, next time, I am going to experiment with more herbs since this recipe was a little bland for my liking.

This is a good basic recipe for salmon, either fillets or whole. Some ingredients we use in the NW, but not necessarily at the same time: fresh, minced garlic/onion/chives, olive oil drizzled over the top of the salmon before baking (also before adding herbs), dried dill weed, grated lemon peel, fresh lemon slices and lemon juice instead of bottled juice, a bit of ground, or even fresh grated, ginger, any dried lemony herbs, fresh ground black pepper and sea salt. Not everyone likes lemony salmon. And not everyone likes dilled or garlic salmon. If using fillets and wrapping with foil, you can season each fillet differently. My husband prefers it less lemony with Hollandaise sauce on the side, but he's not from here. ;)

I didn't care for how the salmon tasted this way I'm sticking to blackend Salmon. I'm really pickie about sea food so I am sure everyone else will love this.

Looking for a baked salmon receipt that is good. This is high in Cholesterol...but low in carbs...and great in protein...So I will try it.. If you don't like garlic what is a good substitute?

I don't cover salmon when I cook it in the oven, 200c for 10 - 15 mins. Lovely. and not dry!

Halve the amount of garlic powder and lemon juice. Cooking time took 30 minutes, uncovered the last 5.

sounds great, but have brown rice or quinoa for the side dish.

Absolutely. However, ditch the rice side dish.
