Recipe | Baked Salmon

I don’t know how to cook fish. It is the only type of “meat” that I don’t know how to cook. They always say “until it flakes”! How does fish FLAKE?! Now the problem is, I LOVE fish. Rainbow trout and salmon are my absolute favorite. My husband can cook fish. My mother can cook fish. I cannot cook fish.

Until, well, last Sunday! I found a salmon recipe SO easy that even my non fish cooking self could do it! And I’ll tell you what, it was amazing.
