    Very good, I added some salmon seasoning. It may have been a bit undercooked going off the 12 minute timer, but I find it hard to tell with salmon

    Amazing! Modified by adding some baby carrots to the pan.

    It was good but not as good as the salmon cooked with pineapple

    So good! But one of them was a bit raw in the middle. Make sure it is fully thawed. Don’t get big fillets, try to ask for exact sizes. Can this be made into fish pate? Update: made fish pate out of it and it was pretty good. Just make sure you have a big party for it and don’t double it for the same reasons. Update 2: on the ninja grill do lowest temp an under 9 minutes for thawed and 12 or more for frozen

    lemom skin burnt a bit and gave the salmon skin a bitter taste.

    Tasted great. Took a little more time in the oven than suggested. Next time I’ll try it at 425 F.

    It was okay, but a little bland. It was easy to make, but might have tasted better with more seasoning or on the grill.

    followed the recipe as written and it technically came out fine but i didn't care for it. bland and a bit tough, cooking time was too long. i used wild caught keta salmon and i guess i just dont like lemon pepper fish.

    Great! I halved the recipe. Came out perfect. Baked potatoes with sour cream, and butter. Fiddle head greens, pan prepared with bacon. Major yum!

    Yummy! My lemon was kind of bitter though. Did I do something wrong?

    I initially had low expectations for this because it seemed too simple to be good but it was amazing! The lemon was exactly the right complement to the salmon. I did add some garlic powder to the fish as well. Will definitely add this to my rotation.

    Super easy. Super good. It's amazing how something so simple can be so darn tasty. Will be my standard salmon cooking method from here on out. Plus you can punch up the flavors with spices/herbs of your choice. Turned $12 worth of salmon into food fit for the most important company.

    It’s a nice recipe that makes the fish more juicy.

    it came out amazing! the perfect amount of zing from the lemons, although personally I would stick to one slice per piece of salmon next time.
