      OK, I admit it, I was skeptical. Just ten minutes?!! But YES, it was so wonderful. I had been fortunate enough to be given a salmon from a fisherman friend (I live in the Pacific Northwest!) and tried this recipe. Fabulous! Easy! Uses things I already have on hand. Wonderfully moist and tender. Perfect for company (or a dinner party or banquet) because you don't have to do anything at the last minute (it's just hiding there in the oven waiting for you)!! Thanks so much for posting this delicious way to cook salmon. Mmmm! (I should mention that my salmon was not quite this big - probably more like 4 pounds - and the 10 minutes was still just right.)

      This is Fabulous! I tried it, thinking I could always finish it on the grill if it wasn't cooked. It was perfect and tender and just right. My guests actually asked for the leftovers. I am going to do this again. Thanks.
