Good, easy recipe, but a little dry and lacking in flavor.

my mom recently went on a low sodium diet and the rest of the family isn't used to it yet. We'd been making her separate meals...but not tonight. Everyone loved this. Great with some steamed asparagus and mashed potatoes.

This was so easy to make! With so few ingredients, it's hard to imagine how good this tastes. It was excellent! The only thing I did differently, was to add a tiny bit of salt and pepper to the salmon before wrapping it up. Thanks for the great recipe!
