salmon fillet 1 lemon spreadable butter or margarine
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Cut salmon filet width-wise into about 1-1/2 inch pieces. Spread a thin layer of butter/margarine over each salmon steak. Slice lemon, and place 1 slice of lemon on top of each salmon steak. Squeeze lemon juice out of unused portion of lemon evenly over each steak. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Serve with rice.
The margarine is not necessary, however my husband says it's too bland without the margarine, and the lemon flavoring is stronger without the margarine. It also prevents drying if you like your salmon cooked thoroughly.

I just found out I had a heart blockage and have to change my eating habits drastically after having a stent placed; I googled baked lemon salmon and this recipe appeared. I have never cooked salmon before but it was delicious! I served this with a side of green beans, my husband loved it!!! I placed the lemons on top of the salmon and squeezed lemon juice over the top before and after cooking it and it was both juicy and flavorful! I just might get to love eating healthy! IT'S A WIN/WIN, THANK YOU, THIS WEB SITE MAY SAVE MY HEART WITHOUT GIVING UP THE TASTE!

Very good! I did mix it up a bit, added 3 finely sliced green onions, some lime juice (since I didn't have any lemons or lemon juice), some lemon pepper and mixed it all up with the butter. Then spread it evenly over the salmon and baked as stated. Very yummy :0)
