Ingredients

  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 Teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/8 Teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/8 Teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 Teaspoon paprika
  • 2 Pounds fresh salmon
  • 1/3 Cup mayonnaise
  • 1 lemon, sliced

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup. 

In a small ramekin, combine 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/8 teaspoon of sugar, 1/8 teaspoon of black pepper, 1/8 teaspoon of garlic powder, 1/8 teaspoon of paprika, and mix. Sprinkle the top of your salmon evenly with your seasoning mix. 

Spread with a thin layer of mayo. A little goes a long way in this recipe. Top with slices of lemon.

Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes.

Remove foil and broil an extra 3 minutes or so to get a nice golden crust on the top.
