This is my own quick and easy recipe for a very moist, buttery baked salmon. It is lightly flavored with Old Bay seasoning, a touch of lemon and garlic and herbs. Don't shy away from trying this because of the amount of butter used. Most of the butter remains in the pan. I serve it with a baked potato, romaine salad and cheddar chive biscuits. Simply delicious. Also, there is almost no clean-up!
