This is not the usual salmon seasoned with that "lemon pepper seasoning" from a shaker bottle. It has real, fresh lemon and fresh ground black pepper flavor. It's an easy, quick entree and easy, quick clean-up. Bake it in the oven or throw it on the grill. It cooks in ten minutes. Healthy, flavorful, quick and easy... perfect for even the busiest day.
