  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning

  • Drizzle the lemon juice and olive oil over the salmon (some may leak onto your baking sheet, but that's okay!). Then, sprinkle the Old Bay Seasoning on top.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes until the internal temperature of the salmon reaches 125°F. Serve hot and enjoy!

Pro Tips
