Baked Marinated Salmon with Crab Mashed Potatoes

This is one of my absolute favorite recipes.  What I love about it most is that I always have the necessary ingredients on-hand.  I’ve been making this salmon for years, but just recently started making the crab mashed potatoes.  I had lobster mash for the first time a few years back (delish) and decided to try my hand at the second best thing.  Not quite the same, but they are quite good if I do say so myself.

People I know who despise salmon have actually told me they enjoy this recipe.  I can’t take credit though.  This is one recipe that I found that I love as is.  Thank you recipezaar.com!
