Another delicious-sounding recipe from the seafood cookbook, "Simply Shrimp, Salmon, and (fish) Steaks".

This reminds me of dinners I used to make in residence at university! Except then, I would wrap the salmon in foil and wouldn't use fresh lemon juice (rather I would just put lemon slices on top of the salmon). I tried this version and it was just as tasty. I found that my fish required an extra 5-10 minutes in the oven. Yum!
