how to cook salmon ...

Salmon is a weekly staple at our house.  My kids love it, we love it, so it's a win win!   I often get asked how I cook my salmon, and this is pretty much the way I cook it every time because usually I'm in such a hurry to get dinner on the table, and this is the easiest method, and fail proof every time!
How to Cook Salmon

This is the easiest way to me to cook salmon!

I buy the wild sockeye salmon.  I get out a baking dish a a large piece of foil.  Place the Salmon on the foil and drizzle with a little olive oil.  I sprinkle sea salt, dill, garlic powder, and fresh lemon pepper (the Trader Joe's kind is my favorite, you grind it up right onto the fish, be careful of some lemon peppers, they have all sorts of additives and preservatives in the ingredients)  Then, I top it with a fresh lemon slices.  I then wrap the salmon up in the foil and put it in the oven on the BROIL setting.

Depending on the thickness of the salmon, I broil it wrapped in foil for about 20-25 minutes.  Then I open up the foil to expose the salmon, and broil another 5-10 minutes until it browns a little on the top and finished cooking.

It's as easy as that!  It usually turns out perfectly moist, and tasty!

So, how do you like to cook your Salmon?

Thanks for the recipe, it looks soooo good! We love salmon over here too, and we usually stick to one recipe (though delicious), but I am excited to try your recipe. Mine is simple: salmon + mayo + tomatoe slices = wrapped in tinfoil and broiled (yummness!).
