Honestly, there is no need to be worried, it’s really very simple.
This recipe is an easy way to prepare the salmon and have a restaurant style meal on the table, and it will make you look like a world class chef.

I use a great deal of garlic in this recipe, but if you’re not so much a fan, feel free to reduce the amount.
