Marlene's notes for this recipe:
My husband loved it when I made this no fail version of baked salmon. We have a Meyer lemon tree but you can use regular lemons. I am not a lover of salmon but I did love this.

In a medium glass bowl, prepare marinade by mixing garlic, light olive oil, basil, salt, pepper, lemon juice and parsley. Place salmon fillets in a medium glass baking dish, and cover with the marinade. Marinate in the refrigerator about 1 hour, turning occasionally.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Place fillets in aluminum foil, cover with marinade, and seal. Place sealed salmon in the glass dish, and bake 35 to 45 minutes, until easily flaked with a fork.

I am going to try this recipe today. I do not have any parsley though. Do you know a good substitute for parsley? Or have you tried it without it?
