List of Ingredients:
- 1.5 lbs wild salmon (1 large filet, or farm raised)
- 1.5 tbsp melted butter (or olive oil)
- 1 lemon
- 1 tbsp lemon pepper seasoning
- 1/2 tsp paprika
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Pat the salmon dry with paper towels to remove any excess moisture. Place it in a baking dish. Optional, this is especially good if cooking on a larger pan or dish where the salmon doesn't fit snugly. Place a large piece of foil on a baking sheet. Place the salmon, skin side down on the foil, and gently fold the foil up around the salmon. It doesn't need to be covered completely, just lightly wrapped in the foil.
Combine the butter, juice of ½ lemon, lemon pepper seasoning, and paprika.
Brush this mixture over the salmon in the baking dish, making sure to use it all. Season the salmon with salt if the seasoning blend doesn't contain salt.
Cut the remaining lemon into slices and place on top of the salmon.
Bake for 12-16 minutes until the salmon is cooked to your liking- medium rare to fully cooked. The exact cooking time depends on the thickness of the filet. Let rest for 5 minutes. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley before serving.
