Easy Baked Salmon

Janel and I have been fishing with our family since we were little girls. Our grandparents kept our fishing boat up in Washington state for the majority of my life. Boy, did we catch some beautiful salmon up there! This is us on a fishing outing in Ilwaco, WA.


While store-bought salmon will never taste as good to me as fresh salmon, I still enjoy an occasional store bought fillet every now and then. This recipe is simple & easy, perfect for a work week meal!

Directions


First, I always start off by buying my fish from a seafood counter at a grocery store, if possible. The fillets are usually much fresher and taste better in my opinion.

Ingredients:
Salmon Fillet(s)
Mayonnaise (I use Organic)
Onion Powder (Fresh onion slices would work too)
Dill

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

2. While the oven is heating up, put a piece of parchment paper or foil into a pan. Rinse off the salmon fillets before putting in the pan.

3. Apply a thin layer of mayonnaise to the top the salmon.


4. Sprinkle the top of the salmon with onion powder, then sprinkle on a thin layer of dill.



5. Bake for 20 minutes.


6. Enjoy!!

Salmon is high in protein and low in fat! This dish is a great dinner entree with a side of veggies or salad!

Enjoy! Amy
