Baked Salmon with mayo and honey glaze

Here's the scoop on this fish recipe. I found the recipe on line, followed it exactly, tasted it and found it was way too salty and I LOVE salt. So if I say something is too salty, believe me, it's too salty.

I'm going to revamp the recipe so it shouldn't be as salty for you.

I started with about a 3 pound whole fresh salmon fillet.

Set oven to bake at 350 degrees.

Mix following ingredients: This mixture goes on top of the salmon.

1 cup mayonnaise

2 T. ground garlic and parsley mixture
1 T. lemon juice or more to taste
1 T. Lawyers seasoning salt (The original recipe called for 2 T. seasoning salt which was too salty.)
1/4 cup honey **If you're not a sweet tooth person, you can use less/to taste. 
                        (Honey is my secret weapon because it makes a glaze.)

Mix all ingredients above together until smooth and set aside while you're laying your salmon out.

Prep a cookie sheet with a tin foil to cover the whole thing (You'll thank me later.) and spray lightly with cooking spray. Place salmon fillet on prepared cookie sheet with skin side down. 

Spread above mayo mixture over salmon and make sure to cover the whole fillet on top.

Place in oven and bake for 25 minutes or until flaky in the middle when broken with fork.

Hey, just because it's ugly, doesn't mean it's not good.

When you take it out of the oven, you should be able to use a metal spatula to cut through the salmon just down to the skin and it should slide off the skin when you dish it out.

It doesn't look that appealing, but wait till you try it. There was none left at my house. Once everyone is done eating, you can just roll up the tin foil with extra sauce and skin and through it away. Easy clean up!
