Salmon with Mayo-Salsa

posted on: Monday, July 13, 2009

Enzo took a 3 hour nap today. It was a pleasant surprise. It gave me enough time to make a nice summer dinner and it only took me an hour (I cook really slow). We had brown rice, lentils with zuccini, salad, fresh squeezed orange juice, and salmon. The salmon only took 5 minutes prep time and 20 minutes baking time and only 3 ingredients.
Salmon with Mayo-Salsa
  • 1 pound salmon fillet (fresh NOT frozen)
  • 1/4 cup chunky salsa
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  1. Preheat oven to 350*
  2. Rinse out the salmon under cold water.
  3. Remove any skin and/or bones
  4. Cut the salmon into 4 smaller fillets
  5. Place the fillets on top of an ungreased cookie sheet.
  6. Drain the salsa. Try to get as much of the water out as possible.
  7. Mix the drained salsa with the mayonnaise and spoon over the salmon fillets.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes.
  9. Remove carefully with a spatula and serve warm with fresh lime juice.


  1. Damaris,
    you are always welcome to cook in our kitchen.

  2. An unexpedted three-hour nap is like a gift, sometimes. I celebrate anything over an hour! (For my children, that is. For me...20 minutes would be great!) We cook a lot of salmon in our house (grilled, actually), so this recipe will come in very handy. Love how easy it is! (Perhaps only another mom can understand why that's important?)

    Anyway, I found you through TasteSpotting and am writing to say that if you have any photos that aren’t accepted there, I’d love to publish them. Visit my new site (below), it’s a lot of fun! I hope you will consider it.


  3. yum Damaris! Sounds so good! I don't know how salmon is over here but at my next trip to the grocery store I'll be sure to check it out!

  4. OMG, finally! Someone who likes putting mayo into their salsa: I do it all the time and always get grief for it from others.

    Have you ever tried adding sour cream into salsa? Great as a dip!

  5. We love salmon at our house. I will have to give this a try. Beginning August 5, I will be hosting Crock Pot Wednesdays on I hope you will join me. THERE WILL BE PRIZES:)
