My salmon is a bit large, so I decide to just lop off the tail, and bake it in the roaster.
If you are concerned with a perfect looking cooked fish then use a larger pan, or completely foil wrap your salmon for cooking, and then lay it out on a cookie sheet to cook it.
Stuff the lemon and onions into and under your salmon. Add about a half cup of water to your pan.
Bake your salmon at 350 degrees for around 45 minutes to one hour depending on the size of your fish.
