A simple salmon recipe that uses a mayonnaise and mustard mixture to keep it super moist.

Amazingly Moist Salmon on Taste and Tell

I am so proud of myself. I have been working on organizing things on my computer, and trying to move a lot of it off my regular hard drive and onto my external hard drive. In the process, I started going through the recipes I have yet to blog. But I’m happy to say, I have now gone through all of them, typed out the recipes, and have them all prepared to post about. Now I just have to remember the details on some of these meals I made a few months ago!

Even though I made this quite some time ago, I do remember it. Except for that broccoli side dish. I don’t know if it is just steamed broccoli, or if I did something special with it… I always love salmon recipes. I love salmon to start off with, and it is just so easy to prepare. I used to be scared of preparing any type of fish until I discovered it’s much easier to cook a salmon fillet perfectly than it is to cook a chicken breast perfectly! This salmon is exactly what the title says – amazingly moist. If you area mayonnaise hater, you’ll probably want to skip this one, but I love it, so I loved this recipe. And the bread is quite delicious. And it’s perfect for a week night since it is a quick bread. I don’t see savory quick breads often enough, so I’m always quick to jump on them when I do see them. Altogether a delicious meal!

Update January 2014 – you can now find an updated post of the Peppery Cheese Bread.

    This is the second time I have heard that mayo creates a great marinade basis for fish. A fiend of mine suggested to use it for BBQ-ing and not being a bit BBQ lover I was skeptical but it must be time to try!

    I've got no problems with mayo and salmon is always a hit at my house. Now that bread, that bread sounds wonderful! Like can I just have it?

    salmon is an entree i don't enjoy, but i do love the name! the bread, on the other hand, appeals to me on every level. spice, cheese, moistness–fabulous.

    Aren't you neat? 😉

    I'm usually disappointed by salmon when eating out because it tends to come to the table rather dry – that's why I know I'm gonna love this recipe, Deb!
