Recipe Review – Parmesan-Baked Salmon

This is the first of many reviews of new recipes that we try.  (Hopefully!)

We tried the Parmesan-Baked Salmon and thought it was pretty good.  I couldn’t really taste the lemon juice.  The mayo-cheese mixture was hard to smooth out on the fillet, since it kept sliding around with the spoon.  It just required a little more work than a simple swoosh of the spoon.

I’ve been a cautious of using mayo & Miracle Whip to cook with like that.  While I enjoy those things in salads and on sandwiches, I’ve always been worried that it will taste like a big clump of mayo.  Not the case with this recipe.  It turned out creamy and the cayenne pepper gave it just a little kick.

I made half the recipe since there are only 2 of us and Matthew.  The fillets were big enough to provide Matthew and I another meal.  By the way, Matthew seemed to enjoy it and ate all that we gave him the first night.  The leftovers he ate a little bit.

We served it with a broccoli-cheese rice mix and a tossed salad.
