  1. Preheat the oven to 400F. 
  2. Place the salmon fillet on a sheet pan and drizzle on olive oil, 1 teaspoon of the salt, and 1 teaspoon of the pepper. 
  3. Place in the oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until the salmon flakes apart easily in the middle. 
  4. In the meantime, mix together the tahini, lemon juice, garlic powder, remaining salt, remaining pepper, and 1 tablespoon of the water. Gradually add more water, if needed, until you reach your desired consistency. I like my sauce runny enough to drizzle, but thick enough that it sticks to what I dip it in.
  5. When the salmon is done, drizzle on the tahini sauce, or serve it on the side and dig in!
