I love salmon almost any way you can make it, but particularly enjoyed this flavor combination with lemon squeezed over the salmon before serving. The crunch from the topping was an added bonus. Will definitely make this again.

I don't particularly like fish but this was quite good. Very easy to make - 10 minutes in the preheated oven was perfect. Followed the recipe pretty closely..except a little heavier with the dijon and garlic, and I had no red pepper. It turned out very tasty and will definitely make it again.

Delicious! Made as directed and family agreed it was a five-star meal. Next time I may squeeze some lemon juice over my plate for a little added lemon zing.

Simple and delicious, I've already made it twice. First time I didn't have fresh rosemary, but second time I did. Great, either way.
