What's for dinner? This 2 ingredient, no-fail salmon!
1 filet of salmon, about 12 oz
4 T mayonnaise (no sweeteners added- check the label!)
Sea salt (I used this Red Alaea Sea Salt)
Preheat oven to 425.
Cover a shallow baking dish with aluminum foil and spray with cooking oil if desired. Lay the salmon on top. Spread mayo on top of salmon. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Cook until center flakes easily with fork, anywhere from 10-25 minutes depending on thickness of fish. Don't overcook, and remember that the fish will continue to cook a little longer once it's out of the oven.
Makes 2 servings. Each serving weighs in at about:
38 g protein
43 g fat
My mother in law (or NaiNai, to my kids), made this for dinner shortly after I met her. We still enjoy this quick, healthy dinner with some roasted asparagus on the side, over a decade later. Dinner? Check!
