This salmon recipe is my favorite way to serve salmon fish for my family and any guests. Even though there are a lot of other salmon recipes that i make, this one just really hits the spot for everyone all the time. It is easy to make, basic ingredients, and it turns out so juicy and flavorful.

Ingredients:

Salmon Fillet

1/2 cup Mayonnaise

1/2 cup Ranch (original is best)

2 cloves Garlic (pressed)

1/2tsp Johnny’s Seasoning Salt

Splash of Fresh Lemon

5Tbsp Unsalted Butter

Mexican Blend or Mozzarella Cheese (Optional)

Instructions:

1. Wash and pat dry the salmon fillet with a paper towel to remove as much water as possible and transfer the salmon into a casserole dish or a sheet pan. (cover with foil for easier cleaning)

2. Meanwhile, in a separate dish combine 1/2cup of mayonnaise, 1/2 cup of ranch, 2 cloves fresh pressed garlic and 1/2tsp of Johnny’s seasoning salt. Mix everything until well combined and spread the mix all over the fish fillet on both sides.

3. Cover the fish with plastic wrap and transfer to the refrigerator for 4-6 hours or overnight. (Overnight is best)

4. Prior to baking, using a rubber spatula or a spoon, scrape off the excess mayo mix from top and bottom.

5. Drizzle fresh lemon juice all over the top of the fish.

6. Cut up unsalted butter into smaller pieces and toss on top as well.

7. Bake in the oven at 400F for 20-25 min or until the fish is cooked through.

8. Take fish out of the oven and top with your favorite cheese (i used the Mexican blend) and put it back in the oven until it melts. (optional step)

Serve with my steamed rice with a twist or any other side dish of your choice.

Enjoy!
