What You Need:

Pre-heat oven to 450 and line a baking sheet with tin foil; place salmon fillets on the baking sheet. Combine mustard, garlic, olive oil and seasoning in a bowl and mix well. Cut lemon into thin slices. Spread mustard mix over salmon fillets and top with lemon slices. Season fillets with cracked pepper and place them in the oven for 12-15* minutes.
