  1. wash and pat dry salmon
  2. place salmon in a baking dish and season with salt, pepper, minced garlic or garlic powder, herbs or your other favorite seasonings.
  3. Add 2 tbsp of Mayo, 1/2 tbsp of lemon juice and spread evenly over the salmon.( don’t worry salmon won’t be too greasy!) 
  4. Let marinate for at least 4hrs to overnight for the best taste but could bake right away if needed and also tastes great!
  5. Once ready to bake preheat oven to 350.
  6. bake for 1hr-1hr 20 min. Depends on the thickness of the salmon.
  7. Once salmon is ready need to broil it for a couple minutes.
  8. Before broiling – optional to sprinkle lightly with cheese( I prefer Parmesan)
  9. Broil at 450 for 3-4 minutes.
  10. Salmon is ready to be served at this point!
  11. If you want to make it look more fancy, place salmon on a nice plate or just leave it in your baking dish if you like but omit some of the liquid from then pan! Then garnish with slices of lemons on the sides or top and sprinkle with herbs!

Enjoy with a side of Mashed potatoes and your favorite veggies! !😋☺️🙌😊
