“This recipe started out as a Costco recipe, but I didn't have all the ingredients at the time and had to improvise. The trick is to make sure you don't over cook the salmon, so check it after 15 minutes. With thicker fillets, it'll probably take a little longer, but check frequently after 15 minutes. The salmon will continue cooking after you take it out of the oven. You can use as much or as little salmon as you want, and adjust the time accordingly.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Lay the salmon skin side down on a sheet of foil. Make sure the foil is large enough to fold over into a packet.
  3. Drizzle with olive oil.
  4. Sprinkle with the lemon pepper blend (I use McCormick's).
  5. Fold foil into a packet and put on tray.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes. Check the thickest part of the salmon to see if it is opaque and flaky. It's best if the salmon is just there, but not over done. If so, take it out and let it finish cooking. If it needs a lot more, put it back in and check every 2-5 minutes.
