Baked Mayonnaise Salmon


The second recipe which Vanessa shared with us in this week’s cooking club is Baked Salmon. She got the recipe from a friend in Seattle.

Salmon is a popular food, and reasonably healthy due to its high protein and Omega-3 fatty acids content and to its overall low fat levels. We had the chance to see a salmon run in Adams River before and it was so awesome seeing thousands of salmon spawn and then die. It will be a “dominant year” this year — this happens once every four years where up to millions of salmons is expected.

Instructions

IMG_4869_edited-1Preheat the oven to 375F. Clean and dry the salmon steak.Season both sides of the salmon steak with salt and black pepper.
IMG_4871_edited-1Sprinkle parsley flakes on both sides of the salmon steak.
IMG_4873_edited-1Slather mayonnaise on both sides of the salmon steak. Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes, depending on the size of the salmon steak.

The salmon is juicy and moist. I will certainly try this recipe at home. My family loves salmon. I usually broiled the salmon with some butter and lemon juice and season with black pepper, salt and thyme. Sometimes, I baked my salmon which has been marinated in teriyaki sauce.

Do you have a favourite way of cooking salmon to share?

  1. This is a really delicious dish to make. My cousins wife actually taught me how she makes her famous baked salmon.

    What she puts into her mayonnaise mixture is:
    Grated Carrots
    Lemon Zest
    Shredded Artificial Crab
    Shrimp
    Salt
    Pepper
    Parsley

    Also depending on the availability of her ingredients sometimes she just puts in:
    Minced Onion
    Minced Tomato
    Salt
    Pepper
    Parsley

    It may seen like alot of ingredients but it’s really simple and tastes delicious.

  2. Hi there… just tried out the recipe… very easy… especially since I am quite new to cooking… Came out perfecto! thanks :)

  3. Hi Marina: Thanks for the frequent visit and letting me know. This makes it seem so worthwhile keeping on blogging. Are you familiar what sashimi is? It’s basically raw fish! Anyway, I will blog that and have a little variation for those who does not like raw food. You have a cute site — I’ll blogroll you!

    Hi Eric: Interesting site you have there. I can relate to anxiety attacks because I have seen how sometimes how little many people understand. Bravo for embracing this problem. Hey, I have never heard of Olympia Halibut before but just checked that on the net. You know I’ll try that out one day. Thanks for the tip!

  4. Hello, I am your frequent reader, love your recipes :). This one is wonderful! If you can share the one of salmon sashimi it would be great too! Thanks a lot!

  5. Hi Tami: I use Movable Type which allows me to edit my entries in two sections: the main section and a hidden on. I see you blog on blogspot. Blogspot does not allow you this. If you want to get started on using better blogging tools such as MovableType or WordPress, let me know.

    Hi Jee: You are right. Salmon is good anyway you eat it. We love salmon shahimi too.

  6. Yummy Yummy salmon.. it’s good to eat, cooked or raw. And no matter how we cook, we probably can’t go wrong with salmon. For me, a bit of pepper and salt and grill it.. will do :)

  7. I do that too. I think the mayonnaise gives it a lot of extra flavor and take away the fish taste for people who don’t like that. I wanted to ask you I take a lot of pictures of food too. How do you add the url address on the bottom of your pictures? Thanks for your help.
