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.

    Sounds amazing! I’ve never had strawberries with fish, but I LOVE strawberries tossed with vinegar 🙂

    This looks really great. Every time I cook salmon my house smells like fish for days (weeks, months, years!). Did your house get fishy after cooking this? Thanks.

    Jen – I didn’t notice a fishy smell. Since it was baked in the oven, I think that helps. I also have had the windows open with the nice weather here in Boston.
