Baked Salmon


My baked salmon is an easy weeknight dinner that your whole house will love! My family and friends love this recipe and devour it in an instant! If you love salmon and want to try something new, then this recipe is right up your alley! :)


2 pounds of salmon (whole)

light mayo (enough to cover fish)

2 pinches of salt

black pepper to taste

garlic powder to taste

onion powder to taste

1 cup of crushed fried onion

extra virgin olive oil


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.

Wash and pat your salmon dry. Put some foil on top of a large baking sheet and place your salmon on top. Lightly drizzle some olive oil all over your salmon and massage it in. Evenly coat your whole fish with some light mayo. Season with salt, black pepper, garlic, and onion powder. Bake for about 25 minutes or until salmon is cooked through. Check for doneness at the thickest part of your salmon (if it flakes off easily then it’s done!). Remove your salmon from the oven and sprinkle your crushed, fried onion on top. Place your salmon back into the oven and continue to back for another 2-3 minutes, or until the top is slightly browned.

    I make something similar to this. I make a sriracha mayo for a little kick. My kids gobble it up.
