Are you looking for a simple, easy-to-make, and healthy dinner? Then try this recipe for baked salmon. Salmon is well-liked in my family, but it can be expensive for us, so we don't get to have this meal as much as we might like.

This recipe is fairly flexible. Instead of lemon juice you can use fresh, sliced lemons. You can also substitute minced garlic for the garlic flakes. Experiment and make the recipe your own! I hope you love this recipe as much as my family does.
