I Love fish! Especially Salmon! Unfortunately, my husband can’t stand the smell of it and doesn’t care to eat it either, so I don’t get to eat fish at home much. Even when I do, and I make sure to cook it while he’s at work, I just can’t hide it because he’ll smell it as soon as he walks in the door hours later! lol
But I did treat myself to buying some Salmon fillets from Wal-Mart on my last shopping trip and I wanted to share a very, very yummy way to bake a salmon fillet that I learned a few years ago from my husbands cousin. He cooked the Salmon on the grill with this recipe, but you can also bake them in the stove just as well!
Baked Salmon Fillet Recipe with Mayonnaise and Brown Sugar
4oz salmon fillet, fresh or frozen(I thaw mine in the microwave on power level 3 (30%) for 4-5min.)
Approx. 2 tbls Mayonnaise(I’m sure it would taste just fine with light mayonnaise too!)
Approx. 1 tbls. Brown Sugar(or more if you like!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.Put your salmon fillet in a greased shallow baking dish or in foil on a cookie sheet or cooking stone.
I like to put my salmon fillet on tin foil with the sides folded up around the fillet to keep the juices from leaking out onto my round Pampered Chef stone.
Next, spread the mayonaise on top of the salmon fillet.
Then sprinkle the brown sugar on top of that.
Now it’s ready to go into the oven!
Bake fillet for about 12 min. or until the salmon is flaky when you stick a fork into it.
So that’s it! Very simple, yet sooooooo delicious!!
I hope you enjoy this baked salmon fillet recipe and let me know in the comments what you think!
