    My son picked this recipe and I've got to admit I was a little thrown when I saw cream cheese in the recipe. We decided to go with it and give it a try. We were all surprised with how good it was and the cream cheese was perfect on top. I would have never thought of that, but it just added a whole new level of creamy richness to an already buttery creamy fish. We will definitely make this again.

    Clean, crisp, fresh salmon. Would make it again but maybe wrapped in parchment paper or foil.

    Delish! Used my cast iron to sear the skin, then threw it in the oven for 15 min at 400. Paired with jasmine rice steamed with lemon slices:) also, I used jalapeño cream cheese. Spot on!

    the salmon was very tasty. Never was able to download details. Luckily I've made many s.dishes. Was able to guess on temp. and prep.

    I am not a fan of fish in general, and cooking fish even less. However this was delicious. I also added a pinch of rosemary.

    Wow, cream cheese, and the burned lemon, yum, yum. 1. To make the lemon very thin so that it can be eaten, 2. To add very little butter.

    It tastes fine without cream cheese. I think I’ll start making it like this from now on!

    My cream cheese went bad but it still tasted good. I used the cooking instructions on the salmon but would probably cook on the higher temp as in these directions.
    The cream cheese added an extra enjoyable flavor. My kids still don’t like salmon, just means more for hubby & me

    Made it this afternoon. I marinated the salmon with minced garlic & lemon juice the night before, so all I had to do was preheat oven, place fish on baking sheet, add garlic butter, cream cheese & lemon slices. Made the sides while the fish was in the oven. I actually liked the idea of cream cheese, added an interesting flavour. Overall I liked this recipe & the kids liked it too. But I was not crazy about it. I would like to try something else next time.

    It was delicious. I didn't use the cream cheese and I used peppercorn mix for the pepper, it was delicious and no cream cheese needed.
