Oven Baked Salmon

The Backstory: This is so easy and delicious to make.  I live alone, and I look for recipes that take me little time and little prep.  I also make this for my niece-in-law Phyllis. I try to vary my menu when she comes for dinner. I rarely do however change from my fool proof menu.  My hubby and kids were not fish lovers. That was then, now they do enjoy it.

…The Backstory continues: 
My daughter makes a scrumptious Salmon teriyaki.  My son makes a delicious poached Salmon wrapped in tin foil. Me, I just “throw” a few ingredients  together  and plop it in the oven. Seventeen minutes later it’s done. And I am ready to indulge. Hope you enjoy this dish as much as I do.
