Author Notes

I like to cook salmon in the oven, wrapped in tinfoil. It ensures that the salmon remains moist and juicy and also makes clean-up easy, peezy, lemon squeezy! I am a single gal with a full-time job so this is a recipe for one - but a recipe that makes me feel like a queen (albeit a healthy one) when I serve it to myself after a hard day's work. —Ursula Leonowicz
