Simple Salmon

My sister has been asking for this recipe for 10 years. What's the big deal you ask? My sister doesn't eat fish. But after having this a few months before I moved to Oregon, she was hooked. I'd like to think it's the only fish she eats. It can't be that bad, right? My son at the time was 4 was has liked this recipe since he was 2.

DISCLAIMER: I am one of those cooks who after a while does things from memory and to taste. So there are no measurements in this one. I am also a huge fan of one pan cooking.


  • Salmon fillet (enough to feed you and yours)
  • Olive Oil or butter
  • carrots (baby to sprinkle around the salmon)
  • tomato (sliced)
  • Onion (chopped)
  • Lemon Pepper
  • 13x9 pan

Grease your pan with some of the butter or oil, heat the oven to 350°F. Place salmon in middle of pan. Spread a little butter/oil over the top, sprinkle with lemon pepper. Cover with tomato and onion. Place carrots around salmon. Bake for 30-45 minutes or until salmon is flaky.

Serve with rice.
