If you love salmon, but you have no idea how to cook salmon, read on. It's very easy and delicious and something your family will actually enjoy eating.

First, take your salmon and slice it in the middle, so that it will be a pocket. Don't cut it all the way through. You want to leave around a half an inch still together.

Place small lemon slices inside your 'pocket.' You want to add around two chopped cloves of garlic and some black pepper to your liking.

Now, one of the easiest ways to learn how to cook salmon is to start off cooking it in the oven.

Place some aluminum foil around the salmon, and close it loosely. Heat your oven to 350 degrees and pop in the salmon.

You want to let it cook for about 8 to 10 minutes. Then check the salmon to see if it's done.

When you're learning how to cook salmon, one tip is to check and see if the meat is flaky or still 'heavy.'

If it's still a bit undercooked, return the salmon to the oven for about 3 to 4 more minutes.

Then, take the salmon out of the oven and let it sit in the aluminum foil for a few more minutes.

You can then serve the salmon with some of your favorite sauce, like lemon and butter or marinara.
