    I used the basic instructions. I didn’t have cream cheese, my only real butter was garlic and herb infused, but it still turned out 10/10. I used extra lemon squeeze on top and it was perfect.

    Absolutely delicious and best of all so simple to prep and cook. Thanks for a great easy recipe!

    Easy to make and turned out delicious. I always cover salmon in tin foil and seal the edges. It means you can almost never over cook it and it keeps it moist.

    My son picked this recipe and I've got to admit I was a little thrown when I saw cream cheese in the recipe. We decided to go with it and give it a try. We were all surprised with how good it was and the cream cheese was perfect on top. I would have never thought of that, but it just added a whole new level of creamy richness to an already buttery creamy fish. We will definitely make this again.

    Clean, crisp, fresh salmon. Would make it again but maybe wrapped in parchment paper or foil.

    Delish! Used my cast iron to sear the skin, then threw it in the oven for 15 min at 400. Paired with jasmine rice steamed with lemon slices:) also, I used jalapeño cream cheese. Spot on!

    the salmon was very tasty. Never was able to download details. Luckily I've made many s.dishes. Was able to guess on temp. and prep.

    I am not a fan of fish in general, and cooking fish even less. However this was delicious. I also added a pinch of rosemary.

    Wow, cream cheese, and the burned lemon, yum, yum. 1. To make the lemon very thin so that it can be eaten, 2. To add very little butter.

    It tastes fine without cream cheese. I think I’ll start making it like this from now on!

    My cream cheese went bad but it still tasted good. I used the cooking instructions on the salmon but would probably cook on the higher temp as in these directions.
    The cream cheese added an extra enjoyable flavor. My kids still don’t like salmon, just means more for hubby & me
