Cheesy Baked Salmon

IMG_1558 Y’all this salmon is SO good!!! I could eat it every day and be happy with my life. Before we get into it, a couple of suggestions:

  • Use a whole salmon filet as opposed to the small fillets
  • If you are like me and can’t chop super thin, use a vegetable slicer of some sort for the onions

Okay, now for the recipe:

  • 2lb Salmon Filet
  • 1 Onion (Thinly Sliced)
  • Salt, Pepper, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder
  • 1 tbs Minced Garlic
  • 1/4 cup Mayonnaise
  • 2 tbs Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/2 cup Mozzarella Cheese (shredded)
  • Parsley
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line a basking sheet with aluminum foil.
  3. Place the salmon on the sheet and sprinkle it with the seasonings. I prefer to use Lawry’s Seasoned Salt or Pink Himalayan Salt. Be generous.
  4. Lay the onion slices on top of the filet until it is fully covered. Don’t worry if you didn’t have the slicer. I found out that the salmon will still taste great, it just won’t IMG_1559be as pretty.
  5. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the mayo, lemon juice, mustard, minced garlic. Make sure it is thin enough to spread over the onions.
  6. Spread the mixture over the onions until the filet is fully covered. Top with the shredded cheeses. Bake the fish for about 15 minutes.
  7. Then, broil the filet for 3-5 minutes or until golden brown.
  8. Sprinkle with parsley if you want it to look pretty!


This is the finished product. It looks much better when cut. I recommend putting a piece of the salmon on top of a bed of rice and serving with a green vegetable.
