Zesty Baked Salmon

Give your baked salmon some color and zest by spreading a mixture of green onions, low-fat mayonnaise, and plain fat-free yogurt on top.

Oxmoor House MARCH 2006

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet)

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.
