  • 1/2 t onion powder
  • 1/2 t lemon pepper seasoning

Cooking Directions
  1. Pat the fillets dry and place on a foil lined baking sheet.
  2. Mix together the brown sugar, onion powder, lemon pepper and black pepper together.
  3. Drizzle the salmon with melted butter and sprinkle the spice mixture over it.

Holly's Note:

A friend had been fishing in Alaska and brought some fresh salmon to my mother, who very generously shared it with me. My family aren't big seafood lovers, so it was all mine. I don't remember where I originally saw the base recipe for this, but it was really good. Not too sweet and just the right amount of spice.
