How to Make Lemon Pepper Salmon
You’ll need to zest the lemons first, if you have a proper citrus zester that’s the best option, but a tiny grater works well too.

Next, measure the salt, pepper, onion and garlic powders into a small jar or container and stir well, then add the lemon zest.
The lemon pepper will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week if you are not planning on using it right away. Remember that the lemon zest has not been dried or preserved so it will not keep indefinitely like store bought lemon pepper.
Next, divide the lemon pepper evenly and top each piece of salmon with a couple teaspoons of the mixture.
Bake the salmon for about 20 minutes or until it’s done the way you like it! I think it’s best served hot, but you can serve it cold or cut it up and serve it in a salad if you prefer.
