Kittencal's Easy Moist Salmon Steaks

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

This recipe goes back years, the mayo is the secret to this recipe it's what locks in all the moisture in the fish, you can also use large thick salmon fillets in place of the steaks, I like to use Atlantic salmon fillets, but any salmon will do fine, this can easily be doubled, adjust the salt and pepper amount to taste, these also may be made on the grill placed on a pan

This was awesome. So glad this was posted! Never would have thought of it! I made some changes based on reviews. We made 4 steaks so I doubled the butter, but kept the mayo the same. Used only 2 T lemon juice, 2 t Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 t seasoned salt, couple dashes of paprika, 1/4 tsp basil and dill (dried) and some garlic powder. I threw some sliced mushrooms in there too. This was so so good. And you are right! The mayo is the trick! If you think its too heavy in mayo flavor as written then just lessen it up. Everyone in my family loved this! Will absolutely make again!
