Lemon Pepper Glazed Salmon
This is my absolute favorite dinner. I never, ever, ever order salmon at a restaurant because it's never as good as this dish. My mom makes it weekly, and it tastes incredible every time. It's one of those dishes where you have to have it every now and then, or else you will just crave it and crave it (like chocolate). It's the simplest dish to make, yet it has tremendous flavor. Salmon is my favorite fish...it has the richest flavor of any other fish. Did you know that salmon is considered the healthiest food in the world? It has tons of omega threes, protein, and minerals. It's also believed to lower blood pressure and lower your risk for cancer, improve mood, provide eye benefits, and improve joint protection. Scientists believe people should eat salmon, or other fish with healthy fats, at least 2-3 times per week. I can't believe something that is so healthy could taste so good.
4 large large skinless salmon filets
6 ounces lemon pepper marinade
ground lemon pepper
Garnish: lemon slices (optional)
1. Place the salmon fillets and lemon pepper marinade in a large plastic baggie and marinate for at least 3 hours in the refrigerator, flipping baggie over half way through.
2. Remove salmon fillets and place on a greased baking pan. Sprinkle with a couple dashes of garlic salt and lemon pepper.
3. Broil in oven 7 minutes on each side (14 minutes total). Garnish with lemon slices if desired.
