There’s so much I love about this dish (from the blog Natasha’s Kitchen). It’s simple to throw together, it’s loaded with heart-healthy omega-3 fats and it’s delicious. Definitely worth adding into your meal rotation!

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 6 Servings
  • • 2 pounds fresh salmon
  • • 1/2 tsp salt
  • • 1/8 tsp granulated sugar
  • • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • • 1/8 tsp paprika
  • • 1/3 cup light mayonnaise
  • • 1 lemon, sliced

Preheat oven to 425˚.

Line a large-rimmed baking sheet with foil for easy cleanup or mist baking sheet with olive oil spray.

In a small ramekin, combine salt, sugar, black pepper, garlic powder, paprika and mix. Sprinkle the top of your salmon evenly with seasoning mix. Spread with a thin layer (don’t slather it on) of mayo; a little goes a long way in this recipe. Top with slices of lemon.

Cover with foil and bake for 10 to 15 minutes. Set oven to broil and finish under the broiler for a few minutes to crisp the tops, if you’d like them more well done. (A general rule: Cook for about 4 minutes per ½-inch thickness of salmon, or until the internal temperatures reaches 125˚ to 130˚ for medium. Add a few more minutes if you prefer it well done; subtract a few minutes if you want it medium rare.)
