Baked Salmon with Lemon Mayonnaise; bike ride

I have always liked mayonnaise.

For you Americans, I have also always liked Miracle Whip…..

When I was young my group, like everyone else, used to have French fries (chips) at the local café after whatever event we had been to – football game, movies, etc.

Most people had ketchup on their fries. We had mayonnaise or, even better, tartar sauce. We could pretend we were eating shrimp or something equally beyond our budget.

When we moved to Andorra I fell in love with the Spanish way of eating fries – with garlic mayonnaise or, even better, straight aioli – the Spanish kind, with just garlic, salt and olive oil. It’s the best.

In short – lemon mayonnaise on baked salmon is a logical step for me…. And delicious!

Salmon with lemon Mayonnaise

Here are a few more photos of our Sunday ride – without scolding birds.

We’ve had enough rain and sunshine to turn our world green.

The winter crops – wheat and rapeseed, are all growing now.

The hills are long but not steep.

I caught mon mari just as he went under those 2 trees:

It was a pretty day.

  1. The scenery is just beautiful and so green! It snowed here much of the day yesterday and is snowing again today. But it’s going to be in the mid 60’s on Thursday! Welcome to Michigan…

    I really like mayo and Duke’s makes a really tangy mayo that’s probably my favorite, but Miracle Whip is still my go-to. I have to laugh at all the recipes I see where people tell you to get the mayo and then they doctor it up until it becomes a Miracle Whip clone, but they’ll insist they can’t stand Miracle Whip. I’m a ketchup on my fries kind of gal, but my husband loves tarter sauce on his. Or anything mayo based so he’d agree with you on the aioli. This salmon though? This I would love!

    • I’ll have to google turning may into Miracle Whip – I like that on my tomato sandwiches in summer.
      As to the tarter sauce – hubs loves fish sticks…. I make them in winter when I’m particularly lazy and always with lots of tarter sauce.
