This is my favorite way of preparing salmon in the winter.
Mon mari would just prefer to wait until summer when he can cook it on the barbecue.
It’s winter (barely) so I won the debate.
Unlike some people, we don’t eat the skin. In the past I used an oiled baking sheet, making the skin nicely crisp as a treat for the dogs. Salmon skin was a dearly loved weekend snack. Now that Guapa is an old girl it’s too rich for her sensitive stomach so I started using parchment paper.
For some reason known only to fish, salmon skin really likes to stick to baking sheets – even non-stick sheets.

We use fillets but salmon steaks will work. Add another 5 – 10 minutes for steaks. The mustard and cheese topping gets golden brown and the sharp flavor works well with the sweet salmon.
- Prep Time: 5 minutes
- Cook Time: 20 minutes
- Total Time: 25 minutes
- Yield: 2 servings 1x
- Category: Fish
- Method: Roasting
- 2 salmon fillets, 6oz (180gr) each
- 3 tbs mayonnaise
- 1 1/2 tbs Dijon-style mustard
- 2 tbs Parmesan
- Olive oil for coating pan
- Put salmon on lightly oiled baking sheet.
- Mix mayonnaise, mustard, and Parmesan.
- Divide mixture evenly and spread over salmon.
- Bake at 400 F for 15 – 17 minutes, until top is light brown and fish flakes easily.
For easy clean up cover pan with foil first. This is especially nice if you are using fillets with the skin on. You can carefully lift the salmon off the skin to serve, leaving the skin on the foil.

My site host made some major changes this week. It was, of course, to be an easy upgrade with no problems.
That, of course, is not the way it worked.
The most obvious was a bizarre, non-functioning Captcha page that totally blocked access.
We fixed that.
Less obvious was all the the index pages stopped displaying.
I think I fixed that…. mostly.
Here’s the bizarre part of that problem: The photos on the main index page wouldn’t display, although the links were there. I uploaded new photos. Now the old photos display…. Not the new ones but the old ones.
I have no idea how or why. I have looked. And looked.
I have 2 choices: I can continue to work to get to the root of the problem or I can accept that the old photos are there, working properly, and forget about it.
Logically, I should choose the 2nd option.
I will leave you with more spring flowers while I ponder that…..
My Japanese quince are blooming 2 months later than usual. I can enjoy them against a blue, spring sky rather than January gray rain.
If anything else looks or acts weird, please let me know.
