my go-to baked salmon

I haven’t blogged in months!  But to be fair, we’ve hardly spent any time at home in months (not that I’m complaining).  Last night I whipped up some baked salmon the same way I’ve been making it for as long as I can remember.  It’s honestly too easy and you only need 4 ingredients.  It does involve a healthy/not so healthy dose of mayonnaise but don’t let that deter you. I looooove mayo, but Rock, not so much. The first time I made this for him he was visibly grossed out like the hater that he is but that was before he actually tasted it!  Just try it; it’s so good.

for 4 servings:

4 salmon fillet portions (since we’re in MJ far away from any oceans, I like to use the wild BC sockeye fillets that come frozen from Costco)  /  4 heaping tbsp of Hellman’s mayonnaise (you can use more or less it’s up to you. I really have to restrain myself from piling on a mountain of mayo)  /  salt and pepper



Preheat the oven to 400F and spread a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet. Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper and then spread a heaping tbsp of mayo on top of each fillet. It’s not the prettiest thing right now, but it’ll get better!


Bake for About 12 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through.  Then switch on the broiler just to brown the tops a bit, making sure to keep an eye on things so you don’t end up with a burnt dinner. And voila!
