"When Grilling outdoors is not an option here`s a great tasty way to make salmon fillets in the oven, simple and real good! we like to serve salmon with fresh asparagus and lemon potatoes or grains mixed with spinach, since the size of fish fillets may vary cook 4-6 minutes per 1/2-inch thickness the trick to fish is not to overcook it!"
