Daily Dinner Table

Ideas for dinner tonight. Household and kitchen tips, recipes, tweaks. What's worked great, and not so great.

Baked Salmon with Dill

There are just about as many ways to make salmon as there are fish in the sea. I got this idea, at least for the mayonnaise, from my sister in law Kathy. When she first told me to put mayonnaise on salmon, I thought that it sounded pretty awful, but it’s not!! I guess you just never know! You don’t taste a mayonnaise flavor at all, and it keeps the fish nice and tender, flaky and moist.
For 4 servings you’ll need;
4 salmon filets
Approximately 4 T mayonnaise
Several sprigs of fresh dill, dried is ok too.
Salt & pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Pat salmon filets with paper towel to dry.
Place salmon on lightly oiled baking sheet ( or Silpat on a baking sheet)
Spread about a Tablespoon of mayonnaise on each filet. You want the fish covered, but not really thick, a nice coating. Spread dill over mayo. Place in oven and cook until fish becomes golden on top, about 10-14 minutes, depending on thickness or until your preferred doneness.

This is nice served with roasted asparagus & lemon basil jasmine rice.
