Baked Salmon

Healthy eating is often not associated with 'fast food". Salmon is a healthy choice and it bakes fast and with little fuss or need for special ingredients. A thin fillet or salmon steaks can thaw in the refrigerator all day, placed in a pan with a little oil or butter and a few spices and some lemon, and in this recipe a bit of mayonnaise. While the salmon bakes boil some pasta or make a salad and you'll have supper in about 30-40 minutes. 

  • 1 whole salmon fillet or salmon steaks
  • mayonaise, enough to spread on a thick layer as you would butter on bread
  • sprinkle with lemon pepper and salt
  • sprinkle with fresh or dry dill
  • Top with thin lemon slices. 
  1. Bake in 375ยบ oven for approximately 30 minutes or until salmon is flakey...but don't over cook. 


  1. BTW - I love your pan - perfect for baking the salmon. We've been doing ours on the BBQ and try to have a salmon meal at least once a week. We should be living on the coast!
