A great way to get the benefits of salmon that are quick, easy and delicious; even for those that are not fish fans. My girlfriend, best friend, and kitchen partner taught me the basics of this. I always thought I hated salmon, until I learned the difference between baking salmon and poaching it. Baking salmon allows the fat to cook-in, add flavor, and lose the fish flavor. As usual a preheated oven is key. Play with flavors you like, but you can't go wrong with this basic recipe.
