I remember the first time I cooked salmon – mostly because it was a resounding Fail. I was in junior high school, and one of my jobs was to make dinner for my family every night. I’d get home from school around 3:45 PM, eat a snack, and get something into the oven. I had figured out how make a beef roast, chicken breasts, turkey drumsticks, pork chops, meatloaf, spaghetti – of course back then my default was to put the meat-of-the-day into a roasting pan add a little water, onions, salt, pepper and garlic powder – or maybe a bag of Mrs Grass’s Onion Mix, cover the whole thing tightly with foil, and put it in the oven at 425°F for 3ish hours. This worked pretty well most of the time – or at least, I didn’t get many complaints.
