Top the salmon with the brown sugar, crushed peppercorns, dill and citrus slices. The salmon can be baked or smoked, depending on your preference. If baking, heat the oven to 325 degrees. Bake for 20-25 minutes for each 2 pounds of salmon. If you prefer to smake the salmon, you can smoke for 20-30 minutes for each 2 pounds of salmon.
