Ingredients

  • 2 lbs fresh salmon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp sugar
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp paprika
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 lemon sliced

Instructions

  1. How to Make the Best Oven Roasted Salmon:
  2. Preheat the Oven to 350˚F for 20 min. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup.
  3. In a small ramekin, combine 1/2 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp sugar, 1/8 tsp black pepper, 1/8 tsp garlic powder, 1/8 tsp paprika and mix. Sprinkle the top of your salmon evenly with your seasoning mix.
  4. Spread with a thin layer of mayo. It really just needs a little. Don't slather it on. A little goes a long way with Mayo. Top with slices of lemon. Cover with foil and bake at 350˚F for 20 min. Remove foil and broil a 3 minutes or so to get a nice golden crust on the top.
