Garlic-Crusted Salmon


4 skinless salmon fillets

2 garlic cloves, minced

½ tsp sea salt

½ tsp cracked white pepper

½ tsp paprika

1 tsp lemon juice

Whisk garlic, salt, pepper, paprika, lemon juice and olive oil together in a small bowl. Place the salmon fillets on lined baking sheet and rub evenly with the garlic oil mixture. Let marinate for 35 minutes. Broil 8-9 minutes until a golden-brown crust forms, but fillet is still moist and flaky inside.
