Oven roasted pepperoni salmon was inspired by a search to EZ-DinnerIdeas.com. "Everything tastes better with pepperoni or bacon." That is the mantra of my 7-year-old. He loves salmon. He started more than a year ago when we were watching a cooking show of Ming Tsai butchering an entire salmon and how he deboned and cut up the meat into right portion.
The next day, we were doing our usual grocery shopping. When we walked by the fish counter, my son asked me, "Mommy, can I try the salmon?" Honestly, I was skeptical. I expected that my son would hand me the whole plate after the first bite. But what an amazing surprise. He loves it and he can't get over his weekly salmon dinner since then.
Since my husband is not a salmon eater, I only make salmon on the day when he will be at church for Bible study group. My little one always loves his food with big flavor. So, when I think of putting pepperoni on salmon, I knew that he would love it. Of course, it was no surprise there when he first saw it on his plate.

Although I cook 2 servings here in this recipe, which is perfect for planning date night dinner, please feel free to double or triple the amount if you need to make a family dinner.
All you need to do is to make sure each salmon fillet has an inch of space all around it. Then, the cook time will be the same regardless the quantity you pop into the oven.
Since Old Bay Seasoning and Pepperoni are both very salty, hold the salt and pepper. You may not need either.
