Salmon with lemon pepper and cumin crust

salmon filet or steak
cumin seeds -- freshly ground
freshly squeezed lemon juice
ground pepper -- five spice blendsea salt
bay leaves (2-3 depending on size)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees
-place salmon in a baking dish and brush on melted butter.
-Sprinkle salmon with lemon, salt, pepper and cumin until completely covered.
-Place two to three bay leaves on top and bake at 375 for 35-40 min.

This is an awesome way to prepare fresh salmon! It's quick and easy too.
The cumin combined with the lemon and pepper gives the salmon a unique taste that's both tart and spicy. I've found though that with this recipe, the longer you bake the salmon, the more cumin lemon flavour you get. (For those of you who prefer very moist seafood, try roasting the cumin before adding it to your salmon.)
