Resting salmon filets?

I picked up some lovely King salmon for dinner tonight. I plan to keep it simple - wrapped in foil with lemon slices, slivers of garlic, salt, pepper, and baked at 400F for 10 minutes-ish. I've never thought about it before, but do you let salmon rest after baking?
I usually roast my salmon in the oven until juts barely cooked but with crispy skin. I always let it sit for a few minutes before serving. I find it keeps cooking afterwards which is why I under cook it.
You are basically steaming/poaching yours so I don't think you need to let it rest but I don't think it will be harmed if you do.
