Peppery Lemon Brown Sugar Salmon (Bookmarked Recipes)

Hubby and I are back on track with meal planning. Basically, on Sunday we plan our meals for the week and buy all the groceries needed for those meals. It makes the week nights so much less stressful. Plus since there are only two of us, cooking one night usually provides leftovers for the next day either for lunch or dinner.

I wanted something easy for tonight’s dinner and I had a star on this recipe for quite a while. It was very easy to throw together. I served it with some veggies and roasted potatoes (the Green Giant frozen kind – yum!) We both loved this salmon and agreed to make it any time we need something quick to throw together. I’m submitting these to the weekly blogging event: Bookmarked Recipes.

Peppery Lemon Brown Sugar Salmon – from CB – originally from Rebecca
1-1/2 pounds salmon fillets (bones removed)
3 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning
1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1 tablespoon butter, melted

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Pat the salmon fillets dry. Brush with melted butter. Combine the seasonings in a small bowl and mix. Sprinkle the seasonings over the salmon, and press down gently.

On a lightly greased baking sheet (I forgot to grease mine at all), bake for 20-25 minutes. Line the sheet with foil for easy cleanup.

    I love Cara’s stuff too, and this recipe looks great =) Spaghetti squash is so delicious…I love how you can make it more savory, or sweeten it up with the raisins and it is still delicious!

    This looks awesome! I don’t know why but I’m scared of spaghetti squash. I need to get over that and just try it. It’s bound to give me a nice healthy meal…which I can immediately ruin when I eat dessert..haha.
