Baked Salmon - How To Bake Salmon?

There are lots of different ways to prepare salmon. I usually make our Kerala Style Fish curry (nadan meen curry) or  Mulaku curry (Red curry). But when i started my other blog "Food Blogger on Diet", i started searching  about more healthy food, and wherever i check i can see "Salmon" in their list. Salmon is high in omega-3 oils, high quality protein, essential amino acids, Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B, Vitamin E etc.
