The trick to good salmon is to not overbake it. The general rule is 10 minutes per inch of fish, on a high temperature.
Rinse salmon and place on baking tray. Generously coat with basil and lemon pepper, making sure to pat down the sides so that they get coated too. Spray with canola oil.
Bake on 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes. For a crustier top, cut baking time by two minutes and broil on high for an additional four minutes.
Mix ingredients together for the tartar sauce.
