  • Line a 15x10x1-in. baking pan with heavy-duty foil; grease lightly. Place salmon skin-side down on foil. Sprinkle with lemon pepper and onion salt. Top with onion and lemon. Dot with butter. Fold foil around salmon; seal tightly,
  • Bake at 350° for 20 minutes. Open foil carefully, allowing steam to escape. Broil 4-6 in. from the heat for 8-12 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.

Test Kitchen tips you can freeze salmon and other oily types of fish, such as whitefish, mackerel and lake trout, for up to 3 months. Wrap fish in freezer paper, freezer bags or heavy-duty foil before freezing. A thrifty alternative to purchased onion salt is to mix up your own. Just combine 1 teaspoon onion powder with 3 teaspoons of table salt or another fine-grained salt. The ratio works the same for garlic salt, too. Go fish! These are our favorite salmon recipes.
