    Tasted great. Took a little more time in the oven than suggested. Next time I’ll try it at 425 F.

    It was okay, but a little bland. It was easy to make, but might have tasted better with more seasoning or on the grill.

    followed the recipe as written and it technically came out fine but i didn't care for it. bland and a bit tough, cooking time was too long. i used wild caught keta salmon and i guess i just dont like lemon pepper fish.

    Great! I halved the recipe. Came out perfect. Baked potatoes with sour cream, and butter. Fiddle head greens, pan prepared with bacon. Major yum!

    Yummy! My lemon was kind of bitter though. Did I do something wrong?

    I initially had low expectations for this because it seemed too simple to be good but it was amazing! The lemon was exactly the right complement to the salmon. I did add some garlic powder to the fish as well. Will definitely add this to my rotation.

    Super easy. Super good. It's amazing how something so simple can be so darn tasty. Will be my standard salmon cooking method from here on out. Plus you can punch up the flavors with spices/herbs of your choice. Turned $12 worth of salmon into food fit for the most important company.

    It’s a nice recipe that makes the fish more juicy.

    it came out amazing! the perfect amount of zing from the lemons, although personally I would stick to one slice per piece of salmon next time.

    u can follow the instructions as is and it will come out great! i didnt have any lemon on hand (i forgot to get it at the store) so, in a dinner emergency, i substituted sliced orange and it still came out well! I have also used this recipe with trout and its great!
