Lemon Pepper Salmon

A tangy twist on juicy, fresh, wild-caught salmon flavored with lemony zest, spicy pepper and tamed by parmesan cheese. Each bite screams of flavor. I'm a lover of all things salmon and if you sift through enough recipes you'll find other delicious salmon dishes, but I especially like the kick lemon pepper brings to the table on this one (no pun intended). 

With a newborn of merely 10 days old, I'm all about fast and easy. Seriously. I'm lucky if I can even fit a meal in let alone actually COOK one these days! Half the time I've got a baby in one arm while simultaneously trying to cook, blog, clean, apply make up and pet the dog with the other. So when I say this is easy, low maintenance and do-able for ANYONE, I'm serious! 

5 ingredients total (including the salmon!) and not much need for a lot of cookware, you can have this whipped up in 20 minutes in almost any kitchen. 

Surprise your husband, wife, dinner guests or family with the easy to make, yet seemingly fancy slab of mouth-watering goodness!
