I made this twice during the holidays and it was a huge favorite with my guests. It was super easy to prepare and it was a good choice for the buffet table, as it was equally good at room temperature. I used two smaller salmon filets (a combined 3 lb.) rather than the 3 lb. one called for. I took the salmon out of the fridge one hour before it went into the oven and baked it for 18 minutes -- it turned out moist and tender each time. This will be on my Christmas dinner menu from now on!

This is a great, weeknight meal! It was delicious, easy and quick to make, and required few ingredients.
