    So easy and so delicious! Soon to become a favorite. Might try broiling for a couple minutes to carmelize next time.

    super easy to make! the mixture was just enough for my three pieces of salmon in my opinion, so you might want to make more for more pieces

    Was not fully cooked after 15 minutes so turned the oven to broil and cooked for about 7 additional minutes and it really got the barbeque sauce to really caramelize. Very flavorful and easy meal.

    It was more tart than I'd like. I'm guessing I used the wrong type of BBQ sauce. I didn't have any honey, so I added pancake syrup on top. That helped some. Nobody else complained, so it wasn't horrible. LOL! Next time I'll use less lemon juice. I also wasn't prepared for the sauce burning in the bottom of the pan. My whole kitchen and living room was full of smoke.

    Great meal prep item. Also cheap on the budget, which is great for a college student!

    Simple + delicious! I added garlic salt and Slap Ya Mama seasoning on top of the fillets before the sauce and it turned out amazing. I only used two fillets and had some extra sauce left over. Cooking time was about 23 minutes. Served on a bed of mashed potatoes and side of sautéed kale + red onion. I will definitely make this again!

    Had this for dinner tonight. I've been craving salmon and this hit the spot. Super easy and tasted great!

    great flavor, would definitely add more glaze about 1/2-3/4 through the cooking time. I also always recommend using a thermometer instead of time to cook your salmon to perfection

    This was good and easy to make. It is way better than the recipe with honey, butter and lemon glaze. Tip: be generous with the bbq sauce because the taste of the sauce is very light. Had it with Greek salad 👍
