    Cannot find the webpage w/your recipe for “Baked Salmon” (July 2016 issue) so am using this to send a comment, hope that is OK?

    It calls for 6 Tablespoons of coarse sea salt….is that correct, or should the units be teaspoons? Same w/black pepper….recipe says 2 Tablespoons?

    We made it last nite, not w/Chinook, but Steelhead and it was very good. We used about 1 Tablespoon salt (Jacobson, yeah) and maybe 1 teaspoon pepper. We also piled quite a bit of fresh thyme on top while baking and removed after we took it out of the oven. Then finished w/minced thyme and lemon juice.

    Very great recipe and we will do it again, soon for sure, as well as pass on to our friends and neighbors 😉

    Thank you!
