  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.

  3. Combine paprika through salt in a small bowl. Rub spice mixture over salmon and drizzle with lemon juice. Bake salmon in oven until almost cooked through, about 5-6 minutes.
