  1. Was this baked on a cast iron skillet, a baking sheet, or something different? I’m not sure if it makes a difference, but I’m just curious. I’m new to baking fish!

  2. We LOVE wild-caught salmon, it’s so simple and delicious… even our toddler eats it up! I usually defer to my hubby to make the seafood, but this recipe looks so easy, I think I could do it, lol! Thanks 🙂
