This salmon is super easy to make, but always comes out looking like you're a boss. I've been making variations of this recipe for friends for years, but have finally decided baking the salmon and using just a few simple ingredients is the best way to go.

Although I wouldn't say this is a Thai recipe, it fulfills the four main tastes of Thai cooking: sweet (the honey), sour (the tangy flavor of the lemon pepper), spice (the pepper part of the lemon pepper), and salt (salmon is naturally salty).

Here's what you need:

  • a couple strands of fresh rosemany
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon pepper (I frequently use Mrs. Dash)
  • a 2 pound salmon filet
  • 3-4 tablespoons honey

Here's what you do:

1. Make some slits into your salmon within it's natural texture lines.

2. Place pieces of the rosemary into those slits.

3. Put the lemon pepper all over that filet.

4. Put the filet on an oiled baking sheet and bake it at 350 for about 20 mins (or when the salmon is done).

5. Serve the salmon with some drizzled honey to sweeten the bite from the lemon pepper.
