A side of salmon is as celebratory as a traditional meaty roast--in way less time. Elegant and easy, this recipe cleverly uses the same flavored mayonnaise for brushing and serving as a condiment.
minced fresh chives
finely chopped fresh tarragon
finely chopped fresh parsley
2 -2 1/2
center cut salmon fillet, skin on
Thin lemon slices and/or parsley leaves (optional)
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees . In a bowl, combine mayonnaise, lemon zest and juice, garlic, chives, tarragon, parsley and sugar. Season mixture to taste with salt and pepper.
- Place salmon on a foil-lined baking sheet. Measure thickness of fish. Season with salt and pepper. Spread 1/4 cup sauce over top of salmon. Roast 4 to 6 minutes per 1/2-inch thickness of fish until fish just flakes when tested with a fork. Let rest 5 minutes.
- Thin remaining sauce to desired consistency with a teaspoon or so of water. Serve salmon with sauce on the side. If desired, garnish with several thin lemon slices or a scattering of parsley leaves.
