The calories listed are an approximation based on the ingredients and serving size of one-fourth (1/4) of a pound of salmon. In other words, the pound of fish divided into four (4) equal sized filets. Moreover the calorie count does NOT include the dill sauce topping and garnishes seen in the photos. Actual calories will vary. Storage of the baked salmon is not recommended.
