Lemon Pepper Salmon

This is a fast and easy way to make salmon and get it on the table.  I usually use the pre-packaged 4 oz filets from ALDI (you know, the whole cooking for one thing), but really, you could do this with a piece of any size.


  • Salmon (4 oz per person)
  • Lemon juice (or a real lemon, depending on what is most convenient)
  • Salt and pepper


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and defrost the fish (unless you are purchasing fresh, in which case, good for you!)
  • Slide the salmon into a ziploc bag.  Salt and pepper the tops of the filet(s).  Add in lemon juice (this could be anywhere between 2T-1/4 c…just eye up how much juice is enough to have a marinade going).
  • Squeeze air out of bag and seal.  Wrap bag around filet to increase marinade:fish ratio.  Let rest for 30 min at room temperature.  Flip the bag over every 10 minutes.
  • Spray glass baking dish.  Place filets w/ marinade flat-side down in the pan.  Crack pepper over the top of each filet.  Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 20 minutes.  Fish should be firm and flaky when done.
  • Serve!
