    Salmon is one of my favorite types of fish to cook and to eat. Not only do I love the flavor, salmon offers many health benefits, like Omega 3s, and is high in protein. It’s one of my favorite proteins when I’m looking for something light but also filling.

    This Lemon Pepper Salmon has become one of my go-to easy salmon recipes.

    The outcome of a dish really does depend on the quality of ingredients. You can easily make a lemon pepper salmon with a lemon-pepper seasoning out of a jar using dehydrated lemon zest and black pepper that was milled a year ago, or you can use fresh ingredients.

    My Lemon Pepper Salmon recipe uses fresh lemon slices to keep your salmon moist, lemon zest to give it the citrus flavors you crave, freshly ground black pepper and coarse Kosher salt.

    Using zest instead of juice keeps the salmon filets dry, which allows other seasonings to stick better and packs more punch. I also highly recommend grinding fresh black peppercorns. You will be amazing the difference in flavor from a freshly ground black pepper to a pre-ground pepper. You’ll never go back.
