    Paja's Note:

    Living on the west coast, we have eaten a great deal of salmon. This is ABSOLUTELY the best way we have found to cook it. It is so moist and the flavor is fantastic! Many reviewers have said that they think the cheese, especially the cheddar is unnecessary, and I have to admit that I omit the cheddar cheese myself. The flavour is a little too strong and it is extra fat that is not needed. I do like the sprinkling of parmesan with the paprika because it looks so nice when it is broiled. Using light mayonnaise and light sour cream or yogurt tastes just as good as the full fat versions and cuts down fat and calories even more. Thanks for all the great reviews!

      You are right. This is my favorite way to make salmon, but I omitted the cheese and the final broiling. It just doesn't need it. I use a squeeze of fresh lemon over the fish when done. It came out very moist and flavorful. Great recipe Sue.

      Superb! The salmon was delicious--even my ds that doesn't like fish ate every last bit of his piece. One change to the recipe I made was I used ground mustard (1 tsp) instead of prepared mustard, because I was out of wet mustard and the second change I made to the recipe was cooking the fish at 425-degrees so I could cook potatoes in the oven with the fish--ofcourse we also had to cook the fish for close to an hour (our fish was 3-inches thick). Thanks SueJ for posting this keeper recipe.

      Delicious! The salmon was not "fishy" with this recipe. I will definitely make this again wiht my favorite - orange roughy. The best part of the recipe? I didn't have to handle the fish! Just flopped him in the dish! Thank you, Sue!
