Baked Lemon-Pepper Salmon

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by lazyme

We love salmon and think that most times, it's best just fixed simply. This dish goes in the oven while you prepare the rest of the meal. From Bon Appetit.

I cut the dill way down and just sprinkled some over my fish before baking. I loved the saltiness of the capers and the lemon pepper added so much flavor! I also squirted some lemon juice over the top of the salmon after adding the pieces of butter. The fish was nice and tender, with loads of flavor and really really delicious! Thank you for a great new salmon recipe to add to my favorites Lazyme!!! Made for Lazyme's Cook-A-Thon 4/09 Linda
