"ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS" great blend of simple ingredients, I didn't have lemons so I used Lemon Pepper, garlic powder and regular sugar, this is by far the best Salmon I have ever eaten! Thanks for posting this Restaurant Quality recipe, a keeper and will be made often and added to my "Best of 2012 Cookbook" as well. Made for Spring Photo Tag.
