Line a sheet pan with foil. Place salmon, skin side down, onto the foil lined sheet pan. Rub salmon with a bit of olive oil and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
In a bowl thoroughly combine spice rub ingredients. Rub spice mixture evenly over the top of the salmon.
Place salmon on the middle rack of a 400 degree preheated oven. Roast salmon until just cooked through. (Do not overcook) Salmon will cook in about 12 minutes depending on the thickness. Once it is done place under the broiler to brown the top nicely. About 2 minutes.
