"Dining is and always was a great artistic opportunity." -Frank Lloyd Wright, Architect
This is one of my all time favorite recipes. It has been in my recipe box for over 30 years. The combination is classic Mediterranean diet – sharp tarragon, salty capers, tart lemon juice, sweet mayonnaise and umami flavors of salmon.
The best part is that it takes literally ten minutes to make. Preheat the oven, mix the mayonnaise and spread on the salmon and then roast. Simple and delicious. This mayonnaise is so versatile. It works great on the salmon, but you can also use the leftovers on your sandwiches. The tarragon gives it the great sharp anise flavor but you can use most any herb that you like - chives, thyme, basil - and it will bring slightly different flavor to your caper mayo.
Servings: 4 | Serving size: 4 oz. salmon and 1 1/2 Tbsp mayonnaise
Cooking Time: 30 Minutes (actually a lot less)
This recipe can easily be multiplied. The mayonnaise keeps well for about 3 days and the leftover fish makes great sandwiches.
Mix the mayonnaise, parsley, tarragon, lemon juice and capers and chill.
Place a large skillet in the oven and preheat to 375°F.
When the oven is hot spread the caper mayonnaise over the top of the salmon filets.
Place the salmon in the skillet and return the pan to the oven
Cook for 5 minutes.
Set the oven to broil.
Cook for 3 minutes.
Serving size: 4 oz. salmon, 1 & 1/2 Tbsp. mayonnaise
