    Amazing! Only change I made was adding extra garlic. Also I would say the serving size is at a modest 2-3. Very delicious and took barely no time at all. Preheat. Season. Bake. I can’t wait to try it again!

    Very good. Perhaps would lower the baking temperature the next time.
    It was absolutely delicious!! I added 2 tsp Tony's Creole seasoning and doubled the paprika. This is definitely new my favorite salmon recipe.

    Salmon was delicious! We like things a little spicy so when I make again I may add a little more spice.

    Easy and delicious! I added 1/4 tsp of both cayenne and garlic powder to the spice blend. Then I used the same spice blend to make some Cajun vegetables on the side.

    It was awesome! will definitely make this again. I actually modified the recipe. I coated the fish with the seasoning and then pan seared it in olive oil. I finished it off in the oven.

    I put my own twist on it. No olive oil and separately wrapped in foil. Turned out perfect

    Absolutely fantastic. Salmon is not my number one choice when it comes to fish, sometimes the fish flavor is too prominent. The spices were perfect and on point. Everybody loved this. Will definitely make again.
