Tarragon Mayo Salmon

When I was a kid my mom used to put mayo on halibut, and I thought it was the darnest thing. However as I got older I learned to love it, and started using her "recipe" for salmon and cod. I say "recipe" because the amounts depend on your taste. This might sound strange to you, but the mayo has a great creamy taste when it gets hot. In fact, the other day I heard someone say they use mayo instead of butter when making a toasted cheese (grilled cheese) sandwich, and it makes it more creamy, and I may have to try that, but I digress.

2 Salmon Fillets
Garlic powder

1 Line pan with foil.
2 Put Salmon in pan and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic to your taste,
3 Spread mayo onto of the fish.
4 Generously sprinkle with Tarragon.
5 Bake covered in oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes; uncover and broil for 10 minutes.
6 Serve and Enjoy!

This sounds good ....try "For any Fish"..I found in an old weight watchers book. Salt/pepper fish on both sides.

Mix together: 2 real heaping tablespoons or so of mayo. (I make my own).

1/2 lemon (squeezed/seeded)

Enough "fresh" parsley to be pretty. (or use dried) spread on top of fish.

Sprinkle enough Parmesan cheese to cover tops of fish.

Bake at 375 for 20 min
Then Broil on Hi *middle rack) for 5 minutes watching to make sure it doesn't scorch.

I have used this on every fish I can think of and it's still good.
