Lemon Pepper Salmon

Harv just came home from his annual fishing trip to Shearwater Lodge in Bella Bella
and I now have 50 pounds of salmon in the freezer.
 We made this salmon dish last night at my sister's place but I didn't have my camera.
So you get a picture of the fish freshly caught instead!

  • salmon fillets - We had Coho but any other variety is fine 
  • 1/2 cup mayonaise - or enough to cover the top of the salmon fillet
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried Dill or about 2 tablespoons fresh, minced
  1. Place salmon skin side down on a foil lined baking sheet or foil pan.
  2. Mix mayonnaise with the seasoning and spread over the top of the salmon pieces.
  3. Bake or BBQ for 20- 25 minutes - test it with a fork at 15 or 20 minutes - if it begins to flake it is done. Do not overcook or it will be dry.


  1. Oh I'm so jealous of your salmon in your freezer. Terry needs to get out there and do some fishing for our freezer too. The Lemon Pepper Salmon is delicous . I've put some Mayo down on salmon here too, it keeps it wonderfully moist.

  2. That fish is almost the size of Harv! We love Salmon. On our holiday the guys only caught '5 bite' trout, but I do have Scot's salmon catch in the freezer. I will use this recipe when we have it. Kathy

  3. suuuuuper! Hm....which recipe to chose for tonight?!!!

  4. Om My! where have I been- I got on here and suddenly there were tons of new recipes! where do I start? I love salmon and I'm also jealous! Thank you, Bev for some more variation to try.

  5. you have me hungry for salmon. It seems a little scarce this year. Your recipe with the mayo/dill is just how we like it.

  6. you could invite us all over bev....

  7. You're all welcome! Let me know when you want to come. I can seat all of you in my dining room or on the patio and it would be fun to get together over a meal.

  8. Mayo and dill is always good on salmon. Oh I would love some of that fresh salmon!

  9. Now you have to soak a cedar plank all day and place the salmon on the plank, continue with recipe:)

  10. Bev, today I made this for supper, and I really enjoyed it as well as my family. I used about 1/4 cup of mayo with no sodium added lemon pepper with dill...yum!
