Ingredients

4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
Cooking spray
2 tablespoons chopped green onions
1 tablespoon low-fat mayonnaise
1 tablespoon plain fat-free yogurt
1 teaspoon lemon pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
Chopped green onions (optional)
Lemon wedges (optional)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 425°.

Place fish, skin side down, in a baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 425° for 18 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

Combine 2 tablespoons green onions and next 5 ingredients; spread evenly over fish. Bake 2 additional minutes or until sauce is bubbly.

Serve immediately. If desired, sprinkle with additional chopped green onions, and garnish with lemon wedges.

Tip: Because it has a higher fat content than many other kinds of fish, salmon stays moist and flavorful even if it's slightly overdone. It's a great choice if you're not used to cooking fish.
