    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    I make my salmon this way very often in my convection oven, the mayonnaise coating will seal in flavor and moistness creating the most flavorful moist salmon! I don't bother measuring amounts so all amounts are only only estimated really the exact amounts do not matter for this, use as much salmon as desired and use enough mayonnaise to coat all sides of the salmon generously --- I prefer to use Atlantic salmon for this but any salmon fillet will do, cooking times will vary just slightly depending on the size of your fillets --- for this recipe you will need a flat wire rack to fit in your baking pan this will allow the air to circulate around the fish.

      ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!!! I admit the only seasonings I had were a Lemon Herb seasoning mix that I heavily blended with a lower calorie mayonnaise. I blended it well and spread it generously on the filets, and OMG INSTANT HIT! You'll love it.
