READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by CaribbeanQueen

My sister made this for the family last weekend -- oh my -- it was a feeding frenzy! Don't be frightened by the amount of garlic. The roasting makes it mellow and sweet. The sis served baked cherry tomatoes as a side. Yummy!

I had several roasted whole garlics and I love salmon so this recipe was the perfect supper tonight.
